She has been reviewed in various publications including The New York Times, Newsday, Rheinische Post, Aktuell, The New Yorker, Stadtmagazin , Art Fairs International Newspaper, AroundPhilly.Com and Cityserach.

Her art is recognized as a creature of its era -- a time of sameness in diversity. Art reviewer S. Blomen-Radermacher, states in Germany's Rheinische Post "...there is no self-dramatization or egocentricity in her work, ...(it is) free of all attributes." In a show LOCUS, Michelle Falkenstein writes in the exhibition catalogue: For Rush's "Twin series, she subverts assumptions about gender, age and kinship, implying a continuum and relationship both artistic and genetic."

Ms. Rush has taught sculpture at the Creative Center and privately. She lives and works in New York City.
