Sita Rupe is a bay area artist who has spent her entire career working in multiple medias, specializing in photography, painting, sculpture, and design. She has a unique eye when it comes to photography, and design and has implemented this over the past decade in her painting work. Her paintings are created using a multi-step process that layers acrylic painting and silk screening on plywood, that she then encoates in resin. Sita's work is very accessible and often bought in groupings since the pieces look so great together, several of her pieces are in Michelle's personal collection.  

Sita had another creative shift when she suddenly lost her husband to an accident a few years ago. As a widow with 2 young children to support, she stepped in to finish her husband's many design build landscape projects. She became obsessively passionate about plants and garden design,in a way she never had before, and believes that was her way of feeling connected to him. She continues to run this business and her residential and commercial work can be seen all over the bay area.

Today she manages to juggle three artistic mediums, taking on freelance photo jobs, running a landscape design and build business and still carves out two days a week for studio work where she still actively works on painting commissions for both commercial and residential clients.

Talk about a super woman! We are really thrilled to showcase Sita's work here @Retreat
