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!

Some Good News

Yep good news for a change. Got accepted in the Mount Dora Art Festival in Feb. and am saving some new and different pieces for that show. Also tonight there is a special open house at Artist at The Metro gallery. Gallery owners Nancy and Teresa will have the artists around to sign work and meet and greet the customers tonight. Its gonna be fun. I'll be there for a bit but then running off to Deland for the grand opening of the Florida Museum for Women Artists. Excited to see that and happy that some of my work is being sold at their gift shop.

It's friday and starting off pretty good over here. Hope yours is a good one too and good news is in your immediate future.

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. "
