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!

Happy Mother's Day

Hoping this is a lovely weekend for everyone!
 
The neighborhood boys before they all took off a couple years ago, my son, Kipp is far right in the green tee. When i was a young mother people told me how fast it all goes, they were right!  


 Kipp was the easiest and sweetest baby and child, what seemed at times hard to do (all the things mom's do) now at this older and somewhat wiser age I wish I could have him as a baby all over again!






my mom had it rough and she is one of the strongest people i know. all of my kitchen witches and odes to mothers are my tribute to her and all she has done and would do for me and my family today.
She is amazing and my muse.

This was one of my very first Women Warriors, Fierce Mamas, (Kitchen Witch) figures sooooo long ago.

                         Thanks to all the strong and loving moms out there!

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. "
