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!

Friends In Fast Places

With the Nascar 500 race over and all the festivities over my friend Teresa Thompson of Hot Metal Mama and fellow TDIPTer and I ventured out (race traffic gone)to Ormond Memorial Gardens Museum. Tee was given some race car wreckage

and told have at it for their Nascar exhibit. Because of licensing I couldnt get a pic of all the displays/work but Tee was able to photograph her sculptures.
This is really quite an honor and a really cool feather to put in her talented cap! Her work is so wonderful from her doors and fences to her fun and vintage folk art!
Just check out her offerring this month on TDIPT Mercantile for something you won't find anywhere else. And that is very rare!



I love this piece! (for a better view click on pic. to see the men at work.)

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. "
