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!

F is Not for Fish

at least in this case!

Meet the Fabulous Tatianna, such a demure young bird and so sweetly beautiful! Work it girl

Now meet Raveshing Raven with her steely stare and beauty almost unearthly. She loves to give good face!

side to side work it Raven!

Behind the scenes the girls get ready who will win this walk off

Raven hold your tongue, Tatianna can hold her own and you both are beautiful birds and I am definitely jealous of your boogie!

With apologies to RuPaul these birds were inspired by by his gals and my favs this season on his show. Although Pandora is up on my list and last years Shannel(hail to the Queen!) and Nina are all stand outs and they have inspired me to make more.
These birds are on their way to Main Street Gallery in Clayton Ga they are for sale and more of my over dressed/done chickens/birds will be heading that way. They are embellished with vintage items including broken pieces of jewelery, sequins, glitter, rusty wire all glued on vintage blocks.
Hope you enjoyed this silly little bit of paper fun.

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. "
