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.

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! will be closing on 6/25/13. I am focusing on my Etsy shop and the stores and galleries that carry my work. who knows I may open another website in the future but keeping up with 2 Etsy shops, Facebook, my blog and making Nostalgic Folk Art, its alot.

two dogs two different personalities

First the old man Henry, he just loves to explore and is so gentle, sweet and trusting

the other is the sweet athletic and spirited young man, the one and only Archie

Dogs make my world so much sweeter and funnier!

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. "
