Born in Lisbon, Portugal, in 1972. Rita graduated in Visual Communication Design at ESAD, Escola Superior de Arte e Design, in 1994.

She currently lives in Matosinhos, Porto, where she runs Oficina da Comunicação, an Art and Design space.

Her paintings are marked by gesture. The human figure, lives lived, customs and expressions. They are a celebration of the human character and personal relationships, are a central theme always marked by expressiveness through quick gestures in which singular figures of vibrant colours emerge.

Her style is strongly marked by her mentor, Dagoberto Silva.
