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, www.etsy.com/shop/NostalgicFolkArt





The Best to you always!

Still in a holiday mood

Just finished these three snowmen and adding them to etsy in a minute,

If only I could grow these

We are redoing an area in our backyard for more serious gardening and here's old Henry in the smelly compost dirt, i think he likes the smell but also the hot dirt feels good on his hips

wouldnt it be great if these little fellas could grow in a garden like flowers!

Folk Fest 2015 in Atlanta was so much fun!

driving to Atlanta was ok until we got there, the traffic is crazy! any way lots of interesting art and people! enjoy the pics  oh first we stopped at a couple of antique malls.




 overwhelming which way to go first!






 our only purchase this fireman cookie jar
 look at this traffic!
in the parking lot, i hope they find their dog
 Jean and Dan setting up Main Street Gallery area



 Across from us was Evo Love who makes these wild pieces
 the most unusual piece of art at the show in my opinion

 Evo and Romain eating some delicious chili,
 painted boots by Eric G. she is darling and her boots are so wonderful!
 this mirror is stunning! Stephanie Howard drawings are the best



 this work is so amazing, i couldnt pick just one thing as my favorite, SD Meadows Folk Art


 my one purchase was a painting by Sandy Erickson Wright, it was a bunny with a chick, i have a cow and a lamb by her and she does it the best!

Kathleen Taylor Studio, so whimsical and lovely


 Lurena from Tattered Moon, she really knows how to set her area up to show her whimsies








 so when we got home Henry was so happy he just fell out!


 and Kipp made this for our dinner, which was great as we were Exhausted!!!!
now i need a day or two to recoup and back to work tomorrow or the next day!  

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. "
