hello I’m Carolyn!

I'm an artist, a photographer, a mentor, a friend and a mama to three beautiful souls... when life gets tough I use creativity to help get me through; and when things are good I create for the pure pleasure of creating!

This is my journal, a place where I write about the trials and joys of being human, record the life of my beautiful children and share behind the scenes of creating. I received my MFA in photography because I loved creating through the lens but over the course of the last decade I began to realize that I creating was my lifeline.
