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!

Fun At The Gallery!

Friday night was so much fun and wish I could of stayed for all the fun. Nancy, Artitsts at The Metro gallery owner and Teresa, owner of Metropolitan Frame and Gallery were having a special meet and greet. There was also one of their artist who was painting Christmas ornaments for the lucky customers. I apologize for not knowing his name, but Nancy will get back to me with the names of those I regrettibley leave out.

He really did a beautiful job on those ornaments and they looked so great on the little tree in the window.

I had to get there early as Dan and I had another engagement that evening so here are pics of Teresa and Nancy setting up the event.

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. "
