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!

another halloweenie

working on Christmas and Halloween pieces right now but i do have a bear in the studio
just listed this halloweenie  called Party Favors, its another crow/black bird with a sinister take on the nursery rhyme with 4 and 20 blackbirds baked in a pie,  isnt this a fancy dish to set before a king,

hee hee the roles are reversed, anyways i've tried to make one of these every year for almost 10 yrs now, hope it doesnt get too stale pardon the very poor pun

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. "
