Born in the northern Italy, Rita Miglioli moved to New York in the 1970s and then to San Diego in 1984. Her earned her Fine Arts degree from Liceo Artistico V. Foppa in Brescia, and an Architecture degree from the Politecnico di Milano. She also studied art at the Accademia Arti Applicate in Milan.
Her current series, Immaterial, expresses the dual nature of life: "simple, everyday objects and gestures are material in the sense that we can touch, taste, see and, smell, but immaterial in the sense that each thing contains the platonic ideal of itself—the purity of form and meaning to which it should aspire. Human nature is likewise material in the sense that we live in physical world and must move, breathe, love, or work, but there is in each of us an immaterial or spiritual component that contains the best ideas, feelings, and deeds of which we are capable. Rita's paintings are in private and corporate collections in Italy and in the USA.
