Carolyn Stampeen

Carolyn StampeenA graduate of Dalhousie University with a degree in chemistry, Carolyn Stampeen began her professional life working in a biochemistry research lab. She decided at some point that she preferred drawing her lab setups to handling hazardous material and left the science field. She began working as a freelance digital artist, which led to her discovery of Alex Lindsay and dvGarage, and eventually becoming a beta tester and developer for dvGarage. When the Pixel Corps Online began in spring of 2004, she was one of the first new members, and in 2007  joined to be Managing Director for the online VFX community.

Since late 2012, Carolyn has focused on her photography and in the summer of 2013, travelled throughout mainland Nova Scotia documenting it’s beauty and charm, blogging all the way.
