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!

Its sunk in

my oldest friend is really gone, her service was today.   my heart is broken and there is a sadness in me hard to describe.   

 I'm missing that girlfriend you have for decades that has deep affection,loyalty,honesty, compassion, forgiveness,kindness and a trust
that time made stronger. I doubt i'll be alive another 33 yrs or will ever have a friend like Cindy.

Cancer sucks. 


  1. Oh Carol, my heart aches for you. Thinking about you and sending a giant hug your way. And yes, cancer is just plain evil! Use that amazing talent of yours and channel all those emotions thru your art. It heals. Love ya

    1. Thanks Lurena. working helps just have to force myself to get going.
      Thank you Lurena.

  2. Man, Jinxie. I am so very sorry. I know there are no words when we lose a loved one. I agree with Lurena. Take all your emotions and make a fantastic piece in the name of your dear friend Cindy. You'll feel better and world will get to view another amazing Nostalgic Folk Art creation. XOXOXO ♥

    1. Oh Peanut, Thank you too for your kind words. all my work had a bit of her, she gave me this HUGE coffee/tea cup years ago as part of a desk set and i have used it to hold the water i use in all of my work. i just retired it so it'll never break, its in my studio unwashed, :)


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. "
