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. 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.

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!

We stopped of at The Main Street Gallery in Clayton Ga, to drop off some of my work and see the wonderful art that is there. They allow dogs in the gallery so Henry got to visit too.

Once we got to Gatlinburg we spent the day setting up the cabin and going antiquing and stopped off at a great primitive shop called Rebecca's Thyme which has work in it by TDIPT's Starla of Briar Rabbit Primitives. My family was blessed to meet her and her husband Tony. They came up to the cabin to eat dinner and visit. Tony had some great stories (Popcorn Sutton)and they just are the nicest people. It was a privilage to meet them!!!! Oh and she brought me a precious bear she made that comemerates The Smokies 75th anniversary. I love it!!!! Oh and a bracelet from Bracelets for Bullies, which helps Pit Bulls. They didn't forget Henry either(see pic). I appologize for the blurry pic of Starla and I but it was the best one we had.

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. "
