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!

very sad, lost and heartbroken

a dear friend of Dan and mine, died last night. quite a stunner. he was incredibly smart, generous, strong, funny, brave and a big kid.   he just turned 49 and leaves behind his much loved wife, who like him is so very smart, kind, the best friend anyone could ever have, and so much more, she now has to pull all her courage and strength within her to get her through this incredibly sad and huge loss.   wish i could fix it all for her.


what to do

so my boys know when i'm happy or blue and these pics show how they feel when i'm too sad to play ball or even talk to them.


  1. Oh man, Jinxie. I am so sorry about your friend! How tragic! So young too!! Our furbabies sense when we're upset or sad. ♥

    1. Peanut Thank you for always a kind word. Your a very special person.


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. "
