Bio

My Art Journey

Rita Lulay Malsch

As a child growing up in Germany, I loved doing things with my hands, whether it was needlepoint or other creative issues using various common items. To pursue a career in art was never on the table, but it lay dormant. When my husband and I moved to Georgia in 1968, I had access to ceramic classes and enjoyed painting my pieces. At home, I started drawing portraits with charcoal of famous people. When we moved to New Jersey and I operated my own Family Day Care home, I took painting classes in acrylic in the evening at the Metuchen High School. I got ribbons from local fairs and dreamed to become an accomplished artist. My husband was transferred again and this time to Colorado. I reopened my Day Care business and felt comfortable to pursue art again on the side.

In 2002, I was involved on Mother's Day in an automobile accident caused by a drunk driver. I was then forced to close my Day Care home because of surgeries and doctor appointments that followed the accident. Staying at home full time opened up a new avenue in art. Again, I received ribbons at local fairs, tried to learn as much as I could in art and attended art instructions. As a result of the accident, the third spine surgery in 2011 left me paralyzed from the hips down. After one year, I learned to walk again with a walker, but doing art kept me going. I was represented more than once at the International Peace Exhibition at the International Peace Museum in Nagasaki, Japan. Locally, I was accepted several times into juried shows.

I'm currently working on my autobiography. When I started writing, I thought I had lost every idea and feeling for creating art until a friend told me not to stop painting. I took this to heart and to my surprise, a totally new style emerged.

My mediums are acrylic, Prismacolor colored pencils and Prismacolor markers. To a much lesser degree I use oil pastel and soft pastel.
