Carol Mennig discovered her love of botanical art during her years as co-owner of two successful upscale antiques businesses in Connecticut. She acquired antique botanical books and prints whenever she could find them and kept up her interest when she semi-retired to Florida in 2001. She became involved in web and graphic design and created websites for businesses throughout the country and in the UK. She now concentrates solely on botanical art - both antique and her own. She has published several botanical design books, which are available on Amazon and in select bookstores.
