Rod Charlesworth

Rod Charlesworth was born in Terrace, BC, in 1955.Seven years later his family moved to Kelowna which has been his home ever since.

While largely self-taught, Rod studied for a year and a half in the Fine Arts department of Okanagan College.His early influences were many and include Van Gogh, Monet, and the Group of Seven.

His childhood fascination for drawing and painting has matured to a colourfully vibrant style which has put him in the vanguard of promising young Canadian painters.

His exceptional oil paintings now form part of many distinguished corporate collections, including Esso Canada, Alberta Government Telephone Company, Canadian Bank of Commerce, and Reed Stenhouse.It is interesting to note that Okanagan University College has commissioned Rod Charlesworth paintings to acknowledge major corporate donors to their "Bold Horizons" Campaign.

Acclaim for Rod Charlesworth's paintings is also expressed by his successful exhibitions at major galleries from Vancouver Island to the Maritimes.

Helping Rod to keep his feet on the ground as his career soars are his wife Jan, and their three sons.
