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.


My blog is just to get a more personal view of Nostalgic Folk Art what inspires me. 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!

Two New Nostalgic Folk Art figures

I've decided to put on my blog my new figure(s) after i add them to my website. My art friends always tell me i dont promote myself enough and this is a good way to do so. I get kinda embarrassed about it all and like some of my work more than others, but sometimes the pieces i think are not that great acutally sell before the ones i adore. Anyways blah blah blah, here are a couple of new figures.

Baby's First Big Girl Tooth and Chikn Little.




A couple of silly lil things!

an Artifacts Tease

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. "
