Rush Bowles is a native of South Miami, and grew up exploring the waters of Biscayne Bay, the Florida Keys, Everglades National Park and the Dry Tortugas with his father. These experiences provided the inspiration and catalyst to drive his fascination with the visual themes of fish and water. His works have graced major ad campaigns, hang in corporate art collections and are displayed at Redbone Gallery in Islamorada and Amat Gallery in Miami.
