ARTIST’S   STATEMENT:
Through painting I attempt to touch, express, and interpret the world around me. The study of nature reveals a union of power, mystery, indifference, and a pervasive sense of hope I wish to explore through painting.

EDUCATION: 
B.A.  Art History, 1977, University of California, Santa Barbara, California.
M.A. Studio Art, 2008, California State University, Sacramento, California.

BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION:
Ms. Worthing has lived in various cultural centers in the United States and Europe.  This exposure to such diverse artistic milieu forged a life-long love affair with the arts in general, and painting in particular.  Worthing has painted and studied with many artists, participating in various workshops and classes, and has recently refined her technique with graduate studies at California State University at Sacramento, California.  Worthing studied for years under the guidance of artist, Louise DeMore, who painted and studied with Russian artist, Sergei Bongart.  Various still-life and plein air workshops with artists such as George Strickland, George Lukas, Louise DeMore, among others, influenced her early style.   More recent work has been influenced by the work of artists, John Walker, Jake Berthot, and Forrest Moses, to name a few. 

Worthing is a published poet.
