OUR STORY

We’ve loved every minute of our journey

CAROL YVETTE THORNEY, MBA is a Jamaican born visual artist, Illustrator, photographer and graphic designer who was born in St. Andrew, Jamaica in the Caribbean. She is one of four children of her parents Daphne P. Hylton Bravo Thorney and Vincent M. Thorney.


As an alumni of one of the top private prep-colleges, Alpha Academy, Carol was the beneficiary of a stellar education in math, science, languages and art and feels blessed to have been instructed in fine arts by both Sister Carol, head of the Arts Department, and Mr. Fitzroy Harrack, world renowned and one of Jamaica's distinguished sculptor and painter, who was influential in igniting Carol's passion for charcoal, watercolors, mixed mediums and pottery. Both Mr. Harrack and Sister Carol encouraged Carol to register a year early at 14 years old to take several O'Levels Exams including Art from the University of Cambridge, London, UK which she passed with distinctions.


Carol was 15 years old when her family migrated to America where she spent a short stint at a NYC school where again her Art teacher encouraged Carol to audition for the Parson Institute of Design gifted students weekend program where she was admitted to study fashion design before relocating to Windsor, Connecticut. Again, her Art teacher at Windsor High School encouraged Carol to exhibit her work in the Art Exhibition which was a huge success.


Carol has remained an artist at heart, and supports artists evident by her service as Secretary, Jubilee Committee, Creative Design Committee Chair and as a member of the Board of Trustees at Amistad Arts & Culture Center at Wadsworth Museum in Hartford Connecticut. Carol continues to paint, draw, and write while choosing a successful career in finance, healthcare, technology and consulting from her base in Windsor, Connecticut.
