Welcome! I am Rita Thorp and I paint contemporary abstract art for art lovers to connect with their feelings, places and time thru my art.

MAUD Gallery is opening September 21, in Edmonton Alberta.

Come see the art and meet the artists. Join us on the red carpet and sip beverages celebrating the opening. The festivities go from 4 – 8pm and to attend you must register as this is a private event. See below for a sneak peek of some of my paintings that will be at the gallery.

Maud Gallery is located at 10643 124 Street Edmonton, Alberta T5N 1S5

Transform your space into AWESOME with my original paintings.

These calm paintings are the perfect smaller pieces for gifting to someone or gift yourself like I often do. These look great alone or grouped or as one entire piece. See details under Gallery/Recent Paintings. If you would like to purchase or receive more info send me an email via the contact page.
