How I Got Here
I Hi! My name is Carol Loethen. My whole live I have loved art and creating things. I come from a small town in Louisiana, Bunkie, which I am sure most of you have never heard of. Anyway, I went to Catholic school and every day after school I had fun doing ceramics. I loved it. Coming from a family with five children, all of us taking ceramic’s, believe me everyone we knew got ceramics for gifts for every occasion. I was always told in school how good I was in art, but I felt art was a hobby and not a career. Therefore when I attended college Art was just a minor for me. I worked for many years in retail and doing bookkeeping and accounting, but at the same time also painting, sewing, woodworking, polymer clay, and many other forms of art. While living in Louisiana my sister, Liz, became a jewelry designer. I fell in love with designing jewelry but since we both lived in Louisiana I did not want to compete against her.
I moved to Florida in 2003 and it was then that I decided to start designing jewelry. It has formed into a passion for me. I lost a husband in 2004 and my faith and my love of designing jewelry helped me through that dark time. I decided then that I wanted a career in art and have been working toward that goal.
For the last 2 years I have been attending Pensacola State College in Graphic Design. I have 2 classes left before I graduate. I believe having this degree will only enhance my skills as an artist. I also have taken several commercial photography classes. This is where I learned I also love, love, love photography. Since then everywhere I go my camera comes with me. My favorites are fashion photography, travel photography, food photography and beach photography.
Designing jewelry, photography, and Graphic Design are my passions. I design what I love, and wear my jewelry designs. I did learn that I cannot become attached to them though if I want to pay the bills..:). My designs are unique and unusual. Each photograph and illustration is an expression of me. I hope you will enjoy my jewelry, graphic designs, illustrations, and photography as much as I enjoy them.
I you have any questions please do not hesitate to message or e-mail me at cloethenphotography [!at] gmail.com.
