About Us

Hi, Welcome to Collections by Carol...

Artist Statement:

My husband and I are self taught photographers, environmentalists and wildlife enthusiasts who are passionate about  photographing the vast depth of nature and the wildlife within it.  We love to be out in the field armed with our cameras waiting, observing and capturing fleeting moments within the landscape or encountering wildlife interactions. Our art is inspired by our love of nature and photography. We want to inspire our observers with intimate and engaging moments with fauna and breathtaking natural landscapes. We hope our passion to share our travels and observations with others showcases the expansiveness of the beautiful world we live in. 

Artist Bibliography:

Carol and Roy Toepke are a husband and wife photography team. They have lived in Wisconsin all their lives and currently reside in Fremont, WI. Both are self taught photographers and started their business in Collections by Carol in 2008.  Each year they invest in continuing education by attending seminars and workshops all over the United States. The most recent being in 2022 when they traveled to Minnesota's Lake Superior Lakeshore to study with John Gregor. In the fall of 2022 they spent four weeks in Colorado meeting up with Joe Garza for a five day in the field workshop.

The couple loves exploring their home state of Wisconsin capturing wildlife, lighthouses, tall ships and more. They are actively working on their US National Parks Collection. With all the images they have captured of their beautiful home state they have contributed over 15 years of imagery to Our Wisconsin Magazine.

While Wisconsin provides the opportunity to capture many stunning moments Carol and Roy look forward to larger trips out of the country twice a year. Their most recent trip to Africa provided a stunning array of both landscape and wildlife photographs. They are currently planning to travel to Scotland and Ireland in June of 2023 and look forward to photographing landscapes, wildlife and birds while there. And to Svalbard in fall of 2023 for Arctic flora and fauna along with Polar Bears.

Carol and Roy currently showcase their photography at gallery exhibitions, farmers markets and art events. You can find their photography on display and for sale at the Gallery and Frame Shop in Fond du Lac where they have shown their images for over 15 years. 

Carol and Roy are members and active participants in WVA - Wisconsin Visual Artist, FDLAA - Fond Du Lac Artists Association, TVA - Thelma Sadoff Visual Artists, the Art Connective with Alexis Arnold and Art Dose Magazine's Artists Directory with Frank Juarez.  As they are environmental conservationist artists, they support the Friends of the Apostles Islands National Park, Friends of the Sax Zim Bog and the World Wildlife Fund.
