Nostalgic Folk Art was born in 2004. I came up with Nostalgic Folk Art name for my paper mache figures because I love the older things that remind me of my childhood and of innocent times prior to the 1960's .They are figures of folks both childish and impish and I love vintage folk art so putting nostalgic with folk art was/is a perfect and fitting name for my lil figures and business.

My blog is just to get a more personal view of Nostalgic Folk Art what inspires me. Thank you for taking the time to visit!

And when your done visiting here, I'd love for you to check out my work on my etsy shop,

The Best to you always!

Images art show in New Smyrna

had approx 240 artists and i got to visit with T Thompson doing a metal works show (no pics of either of these gals work) and Debra Farley The Charming Cherub  

T and i both purchased wonderful jewelry from Debra its so unusual and fun and beautiful! showing off the ring, T went back and got a very unique and striking necklace.

 so i didnt take pics of their work as they both show items that are special only to shows
 It was a great show and wonderful weather on sat.   oh if i had unlimited income to spend!

My First Written Review/Kinda like your first dollar, I treasure this dearly

"Carol Roll is a relative new-comer, creating folk art for four years, now. Her paper mache figures reflect significant talent. At first glance, her angels, people, mermaids, and animals may appear cute and dear. At closer look, they are sophisticated, with detailed, expressive faces, each unique. Roll's work is anything but mass produced. It's the real deal. "
