Rushworth Bio

Michele Rushworth was born and raised in Toronto, Canada. Her art education consists of two years at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario and two years at the Ontario College of Art and Design in Toronto. She used to paint street portraits to pay for art school. Michele has now been a professional artist for over twenty-five years. Initially, Michele painted watercolor still lifes that were included in shows with New York’s prestigious Salmagundi Club, American Watercolor Society, and National Arts Club. She then turned to oil painting, falling in love with the lush color and rich effects not allowed by other mediums. She is known mostly for her oil portraits of US officials, CEOs, federal judges, university presidents, and families, which are housed in private and public collections across the United States, including the Air Force Art Collection at The Pentagon and the United States Capitol Collection in Washington, DC.

Michele and her husband, who have two daughters together, moved to Camano Island in 2014, primarily because of the art community and beautiful scenery. When she is not doing portraiture, Michele often uses painting to explore her fascination with the landscapes, seascapes, and animal life of the Pacific Northwest. She hopes that her paintings capture the soaring, joyful feelings she has when outdoors, both to preserve the memory of those feelings and to share that joy with others. Michele views her art as an extension of herself and as a way of connecting with the world. Her greatest joy is when viewers are moved by her paintings and form an emotional connection with them.
