Rita Long

When I retired in 2009, I kicked off my corporate heels and picked up a paint brush. My childhood desire to paint became a reality as I learned from local Michigan artists and studied online, then traveled to Hawaii to participate in a two-week Artist Workshop and Retreat with New Zealand artist Richard Robinson. In 2014 a dream came true for me as I traveled to Positano, Italy to study with Italian artist Antonio Perciavelli. I display my art in Brighton, as well as hosting an annual “Cocktails & Creations” Art Show at my home studio in Fenton. I also offer creativity workshops, calling on my corporate background in training and education to help others learn to express themselves, do what really matters, and live their best life. I love to share my thirst to learn, teach and grow with other artists and help them define their creative and professional path. http://www.ritalongart.com
