This is Carroll’s second year teaching at DSU. She teaches beginner and upper level courses such as Typography, Package Design, and Advanced Graphic Design. During the summer, she normally teaches a section of Introduction to Art. Carroll said she almost got a degree in chemistry because she excelled in science but after visiting the Art Department at The University of Tennessee at Martin, “something just clicked.” “I was just drawn to the field of design and how versatile it could be,” she said. When she is not designing for a client, her personal portfolio is more in the digital art/collage realm. She likes the idea of fragments, colors, and repeated images. She said that she likes breaking images up, this way it loses its original meaning and becomes something completely different. She is an active member of the trivia group,...
