Hello, I'm Carolyn.

Enjoying life, trying to live simply, consciously & creatively.

I studied photography & media and have been working as a freelance photographer for over 10 years. In the past i have exhibited my work and set up my own studio & darkroom.
My style is creative & informal, choosing a natural environment over a studio set up. I run photography workshops for those wishing to take better pictures with their digital cameras and find their personal style.

I love traditional craft. My knitwear and crochet designs are simple & fuss free, I prefer to work with natural colours & materials. 

More recently I have discovered a love for design and have worked on websites + logos for small businesses.

I run a biannual art, design & craft market with my friend here in Birmingham, called The Paperdolls.

i also write a blog incorporating my love of photography, the arts & crafts & some bits and pieces of our life.

i live with my husband and two girls.
