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!

Making what moves me

i wish i could make halloweenies or Christmas items at the appropriate times but it just doesnt happen that way for me. and i wish i could duplicate some pieces and this ghoul is one of them.

she is called When Death Calls and when i walked with her to set her take pics, her paper dress moved so eerily, i tried to take pics of that. unfortunatelly like my work, but even more so, she is so delicate  her paper dress must be handled with care,and will be a hassel to ship but she has a great look in my opinion.


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. "
