Carol has loved photography every since she got her first 'Brownie Hawkeye' camera as a kid. Her works have been displayed in juried exhibits. Her flower photographs have appeared in State of Michigan wildflower brochures. Her web development position at Michigan State University's Biochemistry and Molecular Biology gave her an opportunity to use her photographs in the website. Retirement has allowed her to devote the time she would like to her passion.
Carol moved to Cozumel, Mexico in 2004 and brought along a digital camera with an underwater housing. She embarked on a mission to learn underwater photography. It was a steep learning curve, but the results have been amazing. Since she is a snorkeler and not a diver, most of the photos have been in shallow water often being bounced by waves. Some tricky work. One of her colorful fish photos appeared in a professional Cozumel Calendar.
While living in Cozumel she captured the vibrancy of Carnival and the athletic excellence of Ironman. She developed a photoblog that became very popular on and off the island.
Her work shows her love of the natural world, the island of Cozumel and the blue waters of the Caribbean. Now that she has returned to Florida to live she is expanding her works to include the beauty of Southwest Florida.
