2018 was “quite a year”. It started with a bang. Not the kind one would like but the outcome was good. Late January, my husband was diagnosed with a serious heart blockage.

One of the challenges with taking pictures through the microscope is the instrument’s limited field of view. At low magnification, I can see the vastness of the crystals but not their fine detail. When I switch to a higher magnification, the crystals’ detail shows but at the expense of seeing less crystals. Frequently, I like both the large crystal picture and their fine detail. How to have my cake and eat it too? One way is to take a series of photographs moving the microscope slide ever so slightly with each shot and then try to “stitch” them together later on my computer, creating a single art piece from multiple images of the same crystal.
I have been fortunate to merge my love for science, experimentation and discovery with my love for creating art by growing infinitesimally minute crystals and recording artistic scenes by photographing them through the microscope. I recently decided to foray into the public art arena.
Very recently I’ve experimented and created my first published digital photographic collage from my crystal art. I’m very excited to create more of these crystal photo collages.
Crystal Art Outfitters launches clothing and accessories brand bringing Carol Roullard’s unique micro-crystal fine art prints into the fashion world.
Not everyone has the space for a large 24” x 36” aluminum print. Some people just want small prints to hang in small areas or maybe displayed on a mantle or bookshelf.
During the past several years I’ve been asked if I have small prints of my art. I always had to say no. I was disappointed that I could not accommodate my customers who loved my art but only had a small niche or just the right spot to display my micro-crystal art. I took it to heart and had a small number of my images printed in 4” x 6” and 5” x 7” sizes.
Micro-crystal fine art photography artist Carol Roullard has released 5 pieces of her new wearable art clothing line featuring select artwork designs.
