I’m Carolyn Marie Vines. I am a creator at heart and nothing brings me greater joy than witnessing the magic unfold as thoughts and ideas manifest from our minds into the physical world. Whether its a website, a book, or dodging and burning effects on a raw camera file I find it thrilling to see what is created. I enjoy all sorts of new creative endeavors. Playing with all the Adobe Creative Suite products, such as Illustrator, Photoshop, Flash, and Edge has been great fun and it is my intention to continue learning new skills into infinity. I also enjoy the occasional sewing or beading project and I’ve dabbled in painting. Awakening the artist within myself and others is one of the highest priorities in my life.

What is in a Name

While I do not wish to overwhelm you with specifics, I do wish to share one fun little piece of trivia about myself. I am vastly entertained by the high level of personal synchronicity I’ve found between my name and the details of my life. Not only did I luck into the perfect surname, it seems as if my parents were truly inspired when they creatively chose my name. This lucky happenstance evoked in me a strong desire for playing off my initials as I created my logo.  My logo is a C and a V resting inside an infinity symbol. The CV represents both my name and my business name. The infinity symbol represents…

  • my desire to continue learning new things into infinity
  • the infinite beauty of our world
  • and the infinite service I can provide for you and your company

My Passions

I have been a writer since childhood and I love researching a variety of topics, learning new things, and sharing what I have learned. Fans of my editing will attest to my natural ability for transforming their words into easy flowing, grammatically correct content; and they also appreciate my knack for catching continuity issues.

My love for photography opens a window into the beauty I see in our world. The name of my business, Carolyn’s Vision, is a play on my desire to share the beauty of our world through my eyes and my camera’s lenses.

Over the years, I’ve tried to choose one of these passions over the other. At one point, I came to the conclusion that I am naturally a writer who has a passion for photography. Just when I had made the decision to pursue a writing career and accept that photography should only be a hobby, opportunities began opening up for me to provide both of these services! One of the things I find most thrilling about life is its infinite variety; and I have decided that there is no reason I cannot provide a wide variety of services, including and not limited to copy-writing, editing, photography, and photo-editing.
