Rita’s latest body of work “Souvenirs of Southbank Streets” are inspired by her childhood memories of playing in King and Queen Street in Southbank where she grew up. Reminiscent of the streets free from traffic, her paintings depict childhood games from the 40s, when and where children could play games and have great fun in their playground on their doorstep.
Rita loves the use of colour. Her “Bright Lights” paintings came about from her love and practice of making stained glass pieces. The vibrant colours and dark outlines became part of a new way of painting for her and has evolved over the past ten years. The use of bright colours uplift the senses and bring a happiness and joy to the pieces.
“I love experimenting with a variety of media, I get so much pleasure and happiness when I work – my goal is to share that with others and feel it is what I am on this earth to fulfil.”
