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!

Just added Mama's Girl to my etsy shop

a new figure added to my Nostalgic Folk Art etsy shop. working on a little Alice in Wonderland set, and more little animals, should have them done within a week but this will be the last figure for the month.


  1. I love how you designed those figurines, Carol. They are quite unusual, but very eye-catching and amusing— which makes it stand out from the others. Anyway, I hope your Etsy shop has been doing great. Thanks for sharing this with us!

  2. I think this is my favourite piece from your Etsy shop! You really managed to capture a beautiful expression that is unique, I haven’t seen it in any other figures so far! I really appreciate how you put so much thought and care in your work. It’s so refreshing to see artists who are doing something different and breaking from the norm. Keep up the wonderful work!


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. "
