Bring your images to life with Illuminated Art Hawaii

HONOLULU (HI Now) - Danielle Rush is an Emmy-nominated and Local 706 Guild Award Winning Film and Television makeup artist known for her artistic and eye-catching makeup looks.

Inspired by her move to picturesque Oahu, Rush decided it was time for a change so she could spend more time with her family and less time on set. After having actual dreams of painting with makeup, Rush began to combine her 20-year makeup career, love for photography and passion for painting to create illuminated ART™️

Rush’s signature illumination process begins by printing her photos on canvas. She then mixes her own paint using makeup and other materials and applies them to her photos, sometimes covering the entire piece and sometimes simply to the highlights or shadows, to add texture, motion and create a three-dimensional effect. Lighting is incredibly important to “illuminate” her artwork but the beauty lies in the element of surprise every time you look at each piece.

Danielle loves collaborating with other photographers and working on commissioned pieces to bring other peoples favorite moments to life. She hopes to create a feeling of being present in the moment, and sharing her joy and Aloha with the world!
