Sean Rush, Designer
Sean Rush, based in Palm Beach Florida, transforms architectural spaces into singular sanctuaries for modern living. “It’s about listening deeply,” he says. “The authentic life experiences and beloved objects of a client, can reveal the essence of what that client hopes for. Rush specializes in gorgeous cultural mashups that celebrate the hand of man – globally sourced craftsmanship and the originality of human-made objects. As a painter, his artist’s eye finds balance and flow, rhythm and variation. This rich and responsive sensibility leads to surprising reinventions and projects both distinctive and inimitable.
Sean Rush, Fine Artist
From a boy who drew horses grazing in the fields behind his home to an Italian-trained classical painter, Sean Rush has always returned to his first subject, the horse. Head and heart, muscle and gleam, each commissioned portrait conveys a precise moment of connection and reveals a sense of intimacy and ease. After meeting and spending time with a horse, Sean usually works from his West Palm Beach studio, but he is also available for commissions worldwide.
Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club and Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County
Sean Rush’s interior design and lifestyle gallery conveniently located in the heart of Antique Row’s Design District was a proud sponsor of the 2019 Kips Bay Show House. Being the second year of Kips Bays involvement in the Palm Beach area, Sean’s sponsorship included an onsite Pop-Up gallery that donated 30% of its proceeds to the Kips Bay Boys and Girls Club. Sean believes that a part of being successful is the responsibility of giving back to the community and inspiring creativity in young minds.

THE SEAN RUSH-BESSI SINGLETON SCHOLARSHIP
Sean Rush has endowed an annual scholarship to help talented artists in his community reach their creative potential.
As a child Sean was encouraged to pursue his love of art by his late grandmother, Bessi Singleton. Her complete support, her unconditional love, and her belief in him helped set him on his path in life. With this in mind, Sean pays homage to his beloved granny by creating the Sean Rush-Bessi Singleton scholarship for the Fine Arts at Palm Beach Atlantic University.
THERAPEUTIC RIDING CENTER
Vinceremos Therapeutic Riding Center has been sharing the joy of horses and the benefits associated with equine-assisted activities for children and adults with disabilities in Palm Beach County for 33 years. The 140 riders per week that visit the center build their physical strength, independence and confidence along with cultivating social skills. These are all wonderful results that enrich the lives of these participants, do you feel a but coming on? But, without the generous support of our community our ability to share this opportunity would be limited or not exist.
Sean Rush is part of the Vinceremos community. Sean has been inspired by horses in his art and was similarly inspired by the possibilities that a relationship with horses can create in the lives of those with disabilities. We thank Sean for his vision and encouragement in supporting Vinceremos through his generous donation of fine art to our annual benefit auction.
Sean Rush is a dedicated professional who uses his passion to help the community by offering both his time and talent.
