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!

Finally got some item finished

its been such a bzy month and i just couldnt get into the groove of working.   i had/have to put boundaries on friends and stick to a schedule.       when you work at home sometimes people think your available at any moment, and if they dont understand the creative spirit, they dont understand you have to work when it hits you and if your interrupted it just ruins it.   so i'm really going to stick with this and    anyway   here are 2 new pieces i'm going to be listing on etsy today

love love love my little garden area and it inspired me to make a garden sprite, pics of just the flowers/ colors that make me so happy

there's Archie waiting for me to play play play!

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. "
