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!

my lil friend Darla was feeling very poorly a few days ago and now she's doing much better. Here is a picture of her recovering (recovered). She is an older love but she still has that mischievious look. Today is a very good day!

2012 Mount Dora Art Festival

This year i did not apply for the Mount Dora Art Show (this weekend) because on Fourth Street, right in the heart of the show, Bowersock Gallery will be open and they have my work there. It really is convient for me and Dan and although we will miss seeing some of our wonderful customers and meeting new ones (ideally) I just wanted to see how this goes as it is alot of work to travel and set up. These old bones get tired easier these days.

So if your interested in seeing my work this year at the show, stop by Bowersock Gallery on 137 E Fourth Street. The will have a tent in front of their gallery featuring Christopher Poither who is an amazing painter.



have a wonderful time and i hope you can find something that you just cant live without.

Buy American handmade!!!!

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. "
