She enjoys painting and feels it important for the community. Her artworks show special hunting and gathering grounds, all of which are connected to the dreaming of that country.

Rita’s vibrant palette, shifting patterns of pointillism, depiction of plant, geography and light, comes from Rita’s intimate a?nity with her country.
