Today I want to introduce you to this talented artist from northern part of Sweden who makes the sweetest textile dolls using upcycled fabrics she finds in local stores.

Each doll has a story and its own personality, and you can notice it just by looking their beautiful faces.

These dolls are called “Dandelions Dolls”, because of their resemblance of their hair to dandelions flowers.

Did you know about “Dandelion children (maskrosbarn)”?
The authors of the research paper “Biological Sensitivity to Context”, Bruce J. Ellis and W. Thomas Boyce, explained that some children seem to have the capacity to survive —even thrive— in whatever circumstances they encounter, just like dandelions.

 

Josefin’s creations reflect so much about her own personality and you can feel that in every piece she makes, either is a doll, a painting or a text she writes, you get inspired by her work in every sense.

Where are you from, where did you grow up, where do you live?

I was born in a small village called Rosvik in Northern Sweden. My first job as a pre school teacher was in Östersund, Jämtland. When I came home less than a year later, I found my love in Luleå and moved there. Today I live with him and our two children in Sunderbyn.

  1. Actually, I have never heard about that. This is my first time to know her. Now I know a little about her. She is quite interesting and diversifies. Can you tell me more about her?

    The dolls from her seem very interesting and pretty. I think my daughter should be interested in.

    Can you tell me more about her products?

    Thanks for your sharing.

    • Sure! She is also a writer, so, every doll and every painting she makes have a beautiful story behind.

      She also makes crocheted clothes, like cardigans and vests. Very colorful and kind of a boho style.

      You can follow her on Instagram and Facebook (links is under her picture) to see more of her creations.

  2. Hi! Wonderful bio on Josefin Nordmark. I’ve never heard of her before. I’m fascinated with Nordic and Sami artists. Which is how I found your post to begin with.

    The dandelion dolls have such a good idea behind them. And her paintings are very child-like as well (in a good way!). She obviously has wonderful childhood memories or a great love of children or both.

    Are her paintings for sale?

    Thanks for sharing this info about her!

    • Thank you! The Dandelions dolls are so sweet and represent much how some kids (and some adults) can adapt to anything even when it is a very difficult environment.

      You can buy Josefin’s paintings at her Etsy shop, you find the link above below her picture 😉.
