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!

Something Cool to Check Out

Hey, I participated in a online survey called the "Glyph Project". It's by an artist (Margaret Schnebly Hodge) who's trying to find out what meanings people give to specific things like lines, textures, colors and shapes. The answers you provide give a kind of “physicality” to current cultural belief systems. She will read responses and see how / if the meanings have changed compared to our ancestors, how individuals in our culturally blended America see things as compared to earlier America, and how/if our responses influence her personal belief system and existing art work. Have fun with this survey and please spread the word about this project. The survey is 18 questions (need to be age 18 and over), located on the glyph website at You can contact her at

Margaret and me a few years ago, she's a really amazing artist and actually encouraged me to do art shows waaaaaaaayyyyy back in the begining.

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. "
