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!

Dancing all the way to Bowersock

This lil girl called, Diva In Training, is heading to Bowersock Gallery in Provincetown MA. I am thrilled to have several of my imps there as well as the other galleries that sell my figures.

Bowersock Gallery carries pieces that are not on my website as do the other galleries that carry my Nostalgic Folk Art. Please check them out for art from several talented folks! and as always these galleries will be happy to send you pics of what they have available.
Having original art in your home is addicting and once you start it is very hard to go to any department store or gift shop and pick up something that is probably in every other home. Plus its probably American made and you can't go wrong there!
Anyway just thought I'd put that out there.
Oh and April 1st is coming and I'm putting 3 figures with my spin on this whole Alice in Wonderland bandwagon. So look out for a different Alice, and a play on hearts and of course some imps that arent very twin like coming on To Dwell in Primitive Thymes Mercantile.


  1. She is fantastic Carol!!! Alice in Wonderland?! OH MY! I can't
    I'm having Henry and Archie withdrawal. :> )

  2. What an awesome sweet heart! Can't wait to see your Alice creations!

  3. You gals are so sweet! Peanut so glad your gonna be with me on the first on TDIPT!!! AND the lil gal you made with the bird is AWSOME!!!


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. "
