CR99, “Rose Mountains at Sunset”

This necklace’s bar pendant contains a small unique section from a large micrograph of vanillin crystals called “Rose Mountains at Sunset”. Vanillin is sometimes called Baker’s vanilla since it is used in commercial bakeries instead of the typical vanilla extract. Not only does the chemical smell delicious, but my vanillin supply tends to create warm silky smooth structures, just like the ones formed to create Rose Mountains at Sunset.

Artist Carol Roullard.

Originally from the San Francisco Bay Area, Southern California artist Carol Roullard has been an avid photographer since high school. Through the years, Carol has continued to hone her compositional skills, focusing mainly on nature, looking forward to the day when she could merge her creative skills with her passion for art and science.

Since retiring in 2010, Carol has devoted more time to capturing artistic images. She expanded her nature photography to include the microcosmos. Using a high-powered microscope, Carol captures an extraordinary, intricate world—a world of dazzling tiny crystals. She searches for unique, complex crystalline scenes that will intrigue and inspire the viewer. Many of the captured images mimic land and seascapes; all will stimulate the viewer’s imagination to conceptualize how the micro-world relates to the macro-world.

Carol has exhibited and sold her unique art locally, nationally and internationally on multiple mediums. Her art has received numerous awards and has been featured in video, print and online publications.

Along with printing her art on paper, metal and canvas to be hung on walls, Carol’s micro-crystal art is currently printed on multiple products, including cell phone cases, tote bags, plates, coasters, and note cards.

Carol has expanded her creativity to include mixed media, painting and fluid acrylics. Another passion is writing; Carol has coauthored with her husband, Brian Matsumoto, nine camera-related books.
