I was in Ikea the other day and found this pillow with a dandelion on it - alongside what looks like wild garlic (in the middle) and elder (on the right). The design is called Dorthy and its by Lisel Garsveden: and I bought one for the Dandelion Archive. I absolutely love it.
I am a visual artist living and working in Preston, UK. My work deals with rural and urban landscapes and amongst other things I have a strange interest in weeds.
This led to a particular interest in dandelions: their complexity and variety; folklore and uses; science and research plus their representation in art in an historical and contemporary context.
