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!

New work New directions

yep directions not direction. so much is happening in my neck of the woods, a crazy home improvement nightmare that lasted months! new etsy endeavours!new animals! and sadly i am leaving a wonderful online home i've been involved with for 5 ish years, my online sorority Tdipt. March is my last month. I hope they have many many years of success as they deserve it and Patty has run a kind ship!
I just cant keep up with so many things going on, i need to concentrate on things that if i screw up on it only affects me, less pressure or expectations. 

also i have decided to list more of my work on my Etsy shop and start next month putting the pieces that are in galleries on my site, this will take a bit of time to get it all smoothly as there is so much of my work out there and i've been really lax about record keeping as i truly trust the galleries i'm associated with.  so for this month in transition AND maybe i'll change my mind regarding this. ugh.

ok so far this is what i've added to my etsy site for my work

this on is called Strawberry Jam

this one is called Show Kat

This one is called Blustery Day

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. "
