Rita Salazar Dickerson
Artist, Rita Salazar Dickerson, is a Colorado native. The opportunity to express her creativity came as soon as she could hold a pencil. The middle of seven children, she was born and raised in Grand Junction with her father as her first art teacher. Rita’s achievements as a young artist led to her first commissioned portrait while still in high school. Her professional career began as the in-house artist for a large savings and loan, creating pen and ink illustrations for their weekly newspaper ads but her desire to create fine art never left her. She began painting in earnest in 1993 and has been doing commissioned work ever since.
Rita lives in Colorado Springs and maintains a studio in her home.
