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!

Nostalgic Folk Art, Wish You Were Here

Just added this Florida vacationer who is proudly posing with the fish she caught of our Florida shores!

She is made with paper mache of course, her fish is a vintage swizzle stick, her esparillos have plastic vintage roses on them, her bathing cap a paper flower, and her fishing pole has wire, a painted bead , a bingo #, and careful please a vintage tiny tiny fish hook.

This would look really cute with your collection of mermaids, or if you have old mariner items, vintage bathing beauties. Wish You Were Here is a doll!

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. "
