Rod Charlesworth was born in Northern British Columbia and moved to the Okanagan as a child. He has been greatly inspired by the Impressionists and Thom Thomson of the Group of Seven. His paintings often depict thick forests, mountains, and lakes, as well as urban villages with children at play. Applying bold colour and brushstrokes to his paintings, Charlesworth explores colour and light within Canada’s varied landscapes.
His paintings are collected internationally and represented across Canada.
