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 friend Tee Thompson of Hot Metal Mamma, just moved into her dream cottage in New Smyrna. I didnt take enough pics of her home as well, she had some good Australian wine (I know nothing about wine i just drink what i like) and snacks and i got caught up in that giggle. anyway i took mostly her gorge metal works. one day sigh. now look and dream!
her back yard gate
her outdoor shower with lil frogs leaping all around
Tee Dan and her momma
her old chippy table
her flock of flying fish on her kitchen wall
her saying Dont take my picture, look at her stone countertops
there is a fish like a fossil in the funky wave of her concrete sink
her palm tree in hallway
and the coolest thing ever, this wall was the outside of the original tiny cottage
her work at The Hub Gallery in New Smyrna Beach she puts lights on fences if requested.
friends for life!
So Tee does all that metal work! its really astonishing! if your iterested in having some done,
her site is www.hotmetalmama.com
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. "
