Biography

Karolina Sanchewska is a Polish-American botanist, singer, and artist. Although she was born in Poland, Karolina grew up in Florida, eventually working as a florist, a horticulturist at Fairchild Tropical Botanical Garden, and a professional singer. After getting her B.S. in Natural Resource Conservation with a focus in Botany from the University of Florida, Karolina was fortunate enough to be awarded a Fulbright grant to research epixylic (only growing on deadwood) moss species in Poland. In addition to her research, Karolina started the ‘Terrarium Project’ as a way to spread awareness of mosses and to help cultivate an appreciation for nature in Poland’s younger generation. With her Fulbright now over, Karolina and her husband Gabriel have decided to stay in Poland and are happily living in Krakow.
