About the Artist

Michele Rushworth has been a professional artist for over 25 years. She paints official portraits, corporate portraits, government portraits and children's portraits in oils for organizations and families.

“My goal as an artist is to honor the people I paint, to depict them on their very best day. I believe there is no higher art form than the difficult challenge of capturing the human spirit, of conveying something of the inner life and depth of a person’s character on canvas.” —Michele Rushworth
