Originally from the San Francisco Bay Area, Carol Roullard has been an avid photographer since high school, where she first experimented with black-and-white composition. Through the years, Carol has continued to hone her photography skills, focusing mainly on nature and architecture, looking forward to the day when she could merge her  photography skills with her passion for art.

Since retiring in 2010, Carol has devoted more of her time to capturing artistic photographs and building up her photographic archives. More recently she has expanded her nature photography to include the microscopic world. Using a high-powered microscope, Carol discovered an extraordinary, intricate world—a world of dazzling tiny crystals.

Carol searches for unique, complex micro-crystal scenes that will intrigue and invoke conversation. Many of the captured images mimic land and seascapes; others will permit the viewer’s imagination to interpret the image.

Carol continues to explore her second passion, writing. She has coauthored seven camera-related books and is currently working on her eighth book as well as works in other genres.
