About the Artist
Meet Ms. Carolyn
I was born and raised in the big "D" (Detroit). In my youthfulness I unapologetically held my fist up high, rocked the biggest afro, wore colorful dashiki's and grew up to be quite the conservatively artsy person. When I was little my mom sang religious songs as I drew on house walls to distract me while my older siblings left for school. Lyrically guiding my crayons it was her positive affirmations of my talent that
I recognize as a gift from "Yahweh, Jehovah Jireh" (my GOD). I graduated Detroit's Cass Tech High and the Center for Creative Studies College of Art and Design, (Detroit MI.) My ultimate career (U.S. Postal Service) in summary included outreach activities such as coordinating postmaster installation ceremonies, managing stamp out illiteracy and hunger (WEE Deliver and National Food Drives) initiatives, and performance in national leadership roles at postal Headquarters Blood / Bone Marrow Drives and CFC (Combined Federal Campaigns). I've since retired at the Headquarters level and begun to reactivate my art career. To date it's been a great ride....
