Vera Worthington, Alcohol Ink Artist and Instructor

Vera Worthington has been an artist since a very young age, and is a classically trained artist who majored in Illustration at the Fashion Institute of Technology. She enjoyed a successful career as a graphic designer and an accessory designer in the fashion industry, but is now following her true passion of fine art painting. Her former mediums of choice were oils, acrylics, and watercolors, but in April 2018 a friend showed her a medium new to her- alcohol inks and she fell in love painting with them. The ink’s unpredictable nature makes them a challenge to work with, but that’s what makes alcohol inks exciting to paint with to Vera. She enjoys making both art to display in your (or a loved one’s) home or office and wearable art pendants.

She loves to paint nature- from animals to insects to landscapes to plant life, she’s painted it all (and sold a lot of it!) in the short time she’s been painting with alcohol inks. She’s even painted a good number of commissioned pet portraits, and it always touches her heart when such special artworks are entrusted to her. One of the things she loves most to paint on are tiny 2”x2” tiles, the challenge of painting a scene so small is a fun exercise, plus it brings affordable art to her customers.
