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!

The Show was a Wonderful

experience!!! I was so nervous and scared but people came and really liked my work. it started out slow and so here are some pics taken, then BAM!!!! so many people. there was an art walk that evening and around the corner The Mount Dora Center for The Arts was having an opening too. the community really supports art and artists so if your hankering for a new piece of something original, and your near the area, Mt. Dora is a great place to check out. But go to Bowersock Gallery First!

Holly to greet handle purchases and make sure things go smoothly. She's the right hand lady.

Will this wall and shelf be empty soon?

hello out there come in come in and see the show! thats what my piece is saying as she dances thru the air!

Greeting and thanking Mike who runs and owns the gallery with Steve. Steve was in P-Town and we really missed him but i'm sure he was super busy up there!

our dear friend Tee of Hot Metal Mama (metal sculpter)

He could play a mean Classical Gas, which is one of my all time favorite songs!

the end


  1. Carol, YOU are amazing, and your work reflects just that! I can't imagine having all those ideas dancing around in your mind, and to see you bring them to life....WOW!!! Your magical pieces bring so much to the gallery. They are so fortunate to have your work there.

    Loved seeing you and Tee!!!

    Congrats to you and thank you for sharing.

  2. Yippee!! I knew it would be a fantastic turnout! You look gorgeous! Your display looks fantastic!
    I spy with my little eye "A Respectable Citizen" too! ♥
    So glad it turned out well. So glad to see Tee too! She looks great!!

  3. I'm so glad to see how amazing it was, Miss Carol! I can't imagine it being any other way, since your work is just wonderful. I especially like the aerialist flying from the ladder! I hope all those shelves are empty before you know it.

    It is great to see Tee, also, especially looking well.

    Congratulations on a big success!


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. "
