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!

  1. Hi, Carol,
    I enjoy so much seeing your wonderful folk art! You are quite talented. I also love children's art. I am a retired schoolteacher, and my favorite subject to teach was art. We always had some kind of art project every week. I loved to see what the children would come up with. I hope you are having the best of weeks. Vicki

  2. Your suffragette gal is gorgeous and Congrats on the book! I love kids art - so raw, so straight from the heart.


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. "
