PROFILE

carol-artist_1

Greetings! I’m Carol, an American graphic designer and photographer located in Anniston, AL. I’ve been blessed, or perhaps cursed, with an insatiable curiosity and a passionate desire to improve, mend, teach, and create. I love all forms of creative expression, but my geeky heart also enjoys the more logical problem-solving aspects of design so I do a little bit of everything.

My personal work is mostly fueled from my life, and the personal ups and downs I and the people in my life have experienced. Ever since I was a child I’ve always tried to soothe myself and others by looking for the silver lining and by trying to find the beauty in everything be it an object, event, place, or person. I want to help others find their silver linings by showing them they’re not alone and that beauty and good can be found everywhere. All it requires is a change of perspective and perhaps a bit of laughter.

You can visit my LinkedIn profile for information on my skill set and work experience. I am currently accepting a very limited amount of freelance work and commissions. Most of my personal work is available for sale or exhibition. I self-print most of my work so just send me an inquiry via my contact form if interested.

I hope you enjoy my work!
~Carol
