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. I feel so blessed and thankful to God for being able to make these little pieces and hope they make you smile.

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!

Whoopi has a piece of me!

On Aug. 5th i got a really great email from Bowersock Gallery, Whoopi Goldberg bought a piece of my work! A really great thing to put on my resume,  but i really dont use one.  Anyway here she is with Steve Bowersock (right) and Mike Senger, the Bowersock Boys and a picture of the figure she purchased.

Thanks for supporting the arts!

  2. wowowowow!!! Jinxie, I'm not surprised at all - every single piece I own is a treasured keepsake and it only shows that Whoopie knows awesomeness when she sees it!! So proud and happy for you, my sweet friend.

  3. THanks so much ladies!!!still smiling!


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. "
