ABOUT THE ARTIST

Rita Ortolino-Dioguardi, a talented collage and quilt artist, has been creating collage art since a young girl.  What started as childhood art projects has bloomed into unique and colorful pieces of art.  These stunning images are spontaneous creations.  Her paper collages are created by ripping, not cutting, simple splashes of color from magazines and glossy advertisements and her quilts are born from simple scraps of material.  Each piece of art is given a witty name that helps bring the creation to life.
