Rita Wagner is an artist and writer living and working between Canberra and South Coast. Using mixed media she paints on commission and for exhibition, and holds art classes and workshops. In 1990 Rita had a horrific car accident. After being cut out of her car, with many broken bones, collapsed lungs and a leg severely crushed, it was feared she would not walk again. Unable to work Rita took up writing and painting.
Rita has written and illustrated three books, including Menopause Makes Mummy Mental, a light-hearted, funny look at menopause and all that goes with it. Her work as an author and illustrator of children’s books combines her love of art and writing.
