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!

Old and New Side Show Nostalgic Folk Art

The circus theme is a really popular one for inspiration but the old carnivales , the early mom and pop family owned  and country fairgrounds are what really get me inspired. here are some pics of a piece i did in 2011 it was sitting in a window in Mt. Dora(of an empty bldg) as a promotion for the arts and shops in the area, heck Bowersock Gallery still has a pic of it on their site, they really need to update.
 I got this back and it sits in my studio but i think i'll add this one to my etsy shop for sale, not sure tho its big and funky and kinda neat in my studio but.... 
anyway here are some pictures and you can see my new cute and slightly weird piece.

 So these are my Amazonian Women Wonders, really cheesy, strong lady, bearded lady and live mermaid

 The stand curves like a theater but is so big hard to take pictures, and you know i take terrible ones.

ok so here is the new 2013 version  of World Famous Flying Babies!

More pics on my facebook and of course i'll be adding this piece to etsy along with a raggedy and upset lil kitten


  1. I've been so lazy and do most of my commenting on facebook but just had to say here I LOVE the Amazonian Women. Of course I love everything you do but these speak to my irreverent side and I love that...


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. "
