Josefin Nordmark, artist, clothes designer, doll maker and writer.
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.
