Hello, I'm Carolyn, the artist behind Barefootbutterfly Studio. I was raised in the small town of Fort Langley, British Columbia & now call Chilliwack, BC, Canada my home. Painting on people & things, creating art & then taking photographs to bring it all together is my way to make our world a lovely place to be.
From the beginning of my photographic journey in 1986, I have had a passion for helping women see their amazing inner beauty, outwardly in images that halt time.
Majoring in fine art and photography at Kwantlen University, I gained the technical knowledge I needed to capture feelings of color & light
in my art & photos.
Having completed my Nail Technician , Aesthetics, & Make up Artistry training almost 29 yrs ago, I have had many wonderful experiences creating beautiful art on and for people as well :)
Lets create art!
Carolyn Manchulenko is a Visual Artist, Photographer, Certified Master Nail Technician
