About Us

Welcome to Branches!  Let me introduce ourselves…  Matt and I (Carolynn), are a husband and wife team.  We have 5 children, ages 10-1; 3 girls and 2 boys.  They came to us in perfect order… Girl, Boy, Girl, Boy, Girl. Our children are the joy of our lives!

I have been a Graphic Designer for approximately 15 years.  Doing everything from sign work, to magazine publishing, to blog & web Design.  While graphic design and art are a huge passion in my life, you might be surprised to learn that doing genealogy work is an even bigger passion of mine.  I only began my genealogy journey about 7 years ago, but my life has never been the same since.  My role in the business is mainly designing new product and marketing.  I love getting to know you and sharing family history tips over on my instagram page:  @branches.art

Matt graduated with a degree in Graphic Design from Full Sail University. He has also been long invested in art, working for many years of our marriage as a Fine Art Reproduction Printer, which means that he is super picky about printing and quality!  Matt’s main roll in the business is well basically all of the important work!  He generally is the one answering emails, creating your trees, and printing and framing your art.  He is amazing!

We started Branches with the sincere hope that we could spread our love for family and genealogy to people around the world! We hope that our art pieces will inspire individuals and families to dive deep into their family roots, learn about their ancestors, and share those stories with their children and grand-children.
