Rita is a Portuguese artist based in London. She lives with her husband and their little daughter called Laura. Rita grew up in a small town near Lisbon. She was the baker´s daughter who loved cakes, books and drawing; things she loves in adulthood. She moved to Caldas da Rainha in the Portuguese coast to study Fine Arts, a move that had a great impact on both her personality and work. After graduating, Rita explored various occupations to support her work as an artist, such as a Photographer, Art teacher and Art educator. All these experiences helped to consolidate her practice and dialogue. She went back to school again - books being a passion of hers - to do a MA in Arts Teaching. Seven years ago she moved to London with her husband, had a daughter and there´s where the story begins all over again.
