Rita is an interdisciplinary artist based in the Comox Valley. She began her art career in the prairies, graduating from of Alberta College of Art and Design in 1981 with a focus on printmaking and painting. After graduating she continued doing her work spending time on both the East and West coasts of Canada. She attended St. Michael’s Printshop affiliated with the Memorial University in St. John’s, Newfoundland before relocating to Comox on Vancouver Island. She has exhibited nationally and is collected both privately and publicly.

The influence and encouragement from her mother who was also an artist laid the foundation for Rita’s future in the arts. Idealistic memories, some experienced and some passed down, come alive in Rita’s landscapes.

Since 2016 she has been able to dedicate herself fulltime to painting and printmaking and is very excited for what the future holds. Rita is currently working in the traditional printmaking process of intaglio and collagraph as well as acrylic and watercolour painting.
