Mixed media collage artist

About the Artist

Rita is a talented collage artist who works tirelessly with her hands and fingers ripping paper mostly from magazines. Rita "paints" with paper and delights in flipping through magazines looking for just the "right" color to begin and end her creation. Most times the image is already in her head. On occasion, she lightly sketches out a rough image soon to be the end results.
Her professional photographer takes an image of her art which is then magically reproduced on metal: Hence, original metal art prints.
Rita's earings are hand-made from her metal art prints as well as magnets, calendars, mini desk collage metal creations and quilts. She is always bringing to life new creations.
