Sonia Singh is an artist living in Tasmania and giving new life to discarded dolls. From her Etsy shop:
“My sisters and I grew up playing with second-hand dolls and home-made toys in the beautiful Tasmanian natural environment. I love the satisfaction of repairing and reusing discarded items to give them a new lease on life.
My Tree Change Dolls™ have been rescued and rehabilitated from op-shops and tip shops around Tasmania. These little fashion dolls have opted for a change of lifestyle, swapping high-maintenance glamour for down-to-earth style.
I hand repaint the dolls faces, mold new shoes, and my Mum sews and knits their clothing.”
There’s a lot to love about this project! For a closer look at Sonia and her work, check out this video:
