About the Artist Carol Roullard

Carol Roullard is a working artist based in Los Angeles, California.

Meet Carol

 We see faces in the texture of a tree trunk. The majestic colors of a sunrise or a beautiful blossoming rose pique our emotions.     

     Art, too, should impart feeling. It should transport you to a world that surrounds you with wonder and impact. As an artist, I choose to create work that imparts happiness, a sense of excitement or calm, warmth and hope. Nature’s colors, patterns and textures fascinate me. Even as a young girl, my goal was to capture nature’s character and strength in pictures that evoked awe. Photography became my primary medium.     

     My photography expanded to include the hidden world of the micro cosmos. Using a high-powered polarization microscope, I discovered extraordinary, intricate dazzling crystals with unique natural structures and patterns. The intricate micro-crystal arrangements I create captivate viewers and stimulate their imaginations to interpret an abstract pattern into a familiar scene just like those faces in the trees.     

I love color and the unpredictability some art media impart. Recently, I expanded into fluid acrylics, using bold paint and multiple techniques. This art medium perfectly suits my desire for color and unique structures. In many ways, the results resemble the surprise micro-crystals have to offer.    

      I now spread my time between fluid acrylics and scoping.  I love the uncertainty, the magic and creativity that goes into both mediums. When I grow crystals and put the slide under the microscope lens, the anticipation grows. It's hard to explain. I don't know what I'm going to see. Those moments after adjusting the focus and lighting, when I suddenly see a magical world come into view are breath-taking. They are fantastical! The same with fluid acrylics. The art piece can transform as it progresses and one the paint dries, its true magic is revealed.      

Join me on this journey to capture the unpredictable through art.

-Carol

My art business has been designated as a "Trusted Art Seller" with The Art Storefronts Organization, which means you can shop with confidence, and know that I stand behind the quality and value of my products.



Background

My pre-art career was in IT, specifically project management, quality assurance and compliance. Loved it and it paid the bills. I also have a love for science and art, which through the years I would cultivate and be involved in both of those worlds.


I retired from corporate in 2010 and started to write photography-related books (nine total) with my husband. I also started to take photographs of home-grown crystals through a high-power microscope. Before I knew it, I was showing and selling my micrographs in art shows and galleries. I added fluid acrylic painting a few years ago.


I live in Southern California with my husband, cat, Gunther, and our African Grey parrot, Einstein.
