5x7 Giclee Greeting Card featuring an exclusive design from Professional Artist, Rita Patel.
Rita Patel, CPA, MPH, CWWPM is an artist, generative consultant and founder of Experiments in Beautiful Thinking™ with over twenty years of experience in health care and wellness. As an international speaker, coach and consultant, Rita is a creative ally for individuals, communities and organizations by designing bespoke projects. The promise in her work is to foster personal and collective agency especially in uncomfortable and unfamiliar situations by tapping into each person’s creative force so they can connect and be in their personal power with confidence. She is currently engaged in collaborative community and organization art-centered projects that are designed to shift perspectives, transcend boundaries and reimagine new narratives. Her art, design and illustration imagine patterns as entry points – beautiful open doorways that invite viewers into themselves and new stories. Rita feels strongly that we resonate with only that which is already part of us; that the mystery is in the familiar, but perhaps unknown. The beauty we experience invites us to explore and discover our own creative genius, that in turn allows us to flourish and live the life we are born to live.
