Amy Namowitz Worthen was born and grew up in New York, NY. She studied at the High School of Music and Art, NY; at Smith College, Northampton, MA; and received her M.A.  She is Curator of Prints and Drawings at the Des Moines Art Center. She is also a well known Des Moines printmaker and her work has been exhibited both nationally and internationally.

"Ms. Worthen's engravings, often architectural in content, combine humor, history, and a dedication to expressing the full effect of the printmaking medium. All of her compositions are rendered in fine line detail. She is perhaps best known for her Capitol and Terrace Hill series which combine local landmarks with fanciful characters and perspectives."

For previous examples of Ms. Worthen's work published on the Daily Palette, please see Iowa Alphabet Q and Prospettiva Divina.
