BoriDolls

Borbala fell in love with the art of needle felting in 2007. Since then she has created many unique wool art dolls and figures with this technique, combining natural wool fibers with recycled material or found objects in nature, such as pinecones, acorns, or seaweed.
She opened her Etsy store “BoriDolls Creations” in 2009, where she offers custom soft sculptures, felted toys (including dolls, animals and imaginary creatures), mobiles and jewelry. She also illustrates children’s books.

She received her MA in Visual Communication/Graphic Design from the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design in Budapest, Hungary in 2000. Before she discovered needle felting, she worked as a freelance graphic designer and as a make up artist for film and television for many years.
Borbala was born in Hungary, but currently she lives in Ojai, CA with her family.

If you have the owl as totem or power animal, you’re likely to have the ability to see what’s usually hidden to most. When the spirit of this animal guides you, you can see the true reality, beyond illusion and deceit. The owl also offers the inspiration and guidance necessary to deeply explore the unknown”
