Born and educated on the east coast, Carol Worthington-Levy has been a practicing and growing artist for a lifetime. She holds a Bachelor of Science in fine art with specialties in painting and fabric arts, and studied painting and art history at the Tyler School of Art graduate school in Rome, Italy.
She continues study and growth in the fine arts via critique and painting classes, as well as taking workshops nationwide in painting and collage.
Carol’s mentors include Christopher Schink, Skip Lawrence, Ned Wert and Mike Bailey. She has also taken art workshops with Donna Zagotta, and took collage workshops with Gerald Brommer and Carrie Burns Brown.

She’s donated work to silent auctions for Schola Cantorum, Catalog and eCommerce Club of Northern California, Willow Glen Foundation for WG Middle and High Schools, and Lions Club International fundraisers.
Worthington-Levy’s award-winning painting and collage work has been juried into shows such as the Woodmere Art Museum in Phila., the Brand Museum in Glendale CA, and many shows. Her work is found in private collections coast-to-coast and in Europe.
In addition to her fine art, Carol has branched out into jewelry creation, which she sees as an extension of her collage work. She creates her own ornamental findings using metal clays, and uses found objects such as discarded jewelry, local stones, MahJongg pieces and coins to create one-of-a-kind pieces.
