Rita was born in Queens and grew up in Astoria. Her parents were Josephine and John. Rita married Donald Bligh and moved to Long Island where they had two children John and Luciann. She is the proud grandmother of Danny, Shannon, Sophia, and Aaron.

After a long successful career as a banker, she finally took up her passion for art as a hobby which she put off for too long. She has trained in art school but mostly is self taught.

Keep checking in for new additions to her art gallery.
