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, www.etsy.com/shop/NostalgicFolkArt











The Best to you always!

Folk Fest Is Coming!

Well I sure am hoping that the annual Slotin Folk Fest will be as fantastic as it was last year! It is housed in The North Atlanta Trade Center, and will be happening Aug. 14-16th. A person can spend hours looking at all the interesting old and new folk art for sale there. The first time we went there we were FLOORED! Never seen any show like this before and still haven't. Its quite the event for us.


Here are two super great fellas Dan and I met last year, Mitch Huett and Tom Lawless (trust me his name fits!!!). They are the owners of Panorama Antiques Gifts & Whimsies www.panoramafolkart.com in St. Louis, Mo. Both are talented artists and sold their gallery work there. If you get a moment check out their website and see some of the goodies they sell. I am proud to say I am the owner of one of Tom's cow paintings.





http://www.slotinfolkart.com/ is the website address if you'd like more information on this really unusual and interesting art show. There are so many galleries and so many different forms of artwork and lots of colorful characters. Maybe I'll see ya there!


Here's a picture of what you may see in the parking lot.

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. "
