Rita Rauball



Years ago, as a teenager, I remember that I was fascinated by colours around me and dreamt about having an opportunity and freedom to paint. I was born in Slovakia in a very friendly town called Kosice. At the age of 18, due to the Russian invasion into my country, my life led me on a dramatic journey, that I could never have imagined. This journey has taken me to many corners of the world, and finally I have reached what I feel as my ultimate destination, to what I consider a beautiful part of the world, B.C., Canada. While I had no time to pursue what I know now is my true passion, I have always appreciated the natural beauty around me. I have also drawn inspiration from many great artists over the years. A few years back, an opportunity presented itself, and it brought art back into my life. I started with water colours, and then I discovered water soluble oil which is an Eco friendly alternative. I love both mediums. My desire to paint flowers, winter scenes, sunsets, children, landscapes, Besides my family, which always comes first, my main interests include yoga, Pilates, golf, skiing, biking and walking my dog. I am grateful and feel very blessed at this stage in my life that I'm able to do all these things. I am now pursuing my dream as a teenager and sharing my artwork with you. Art completes my life.
