Gifts of Art presents Simpli Jessi Handmade Rag Dolls

June 19, 2017  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

Jessi Halliday Mesalic is an interior designer, artist, illustrator, doll maker, painter, yarn fanatic — and lots of other artistic-type things.

Originally from Michigan, where she earned her BFA at the College for Creative Studies, she has recently returned from a three-year adventure living in the countryside of England.

Simpli Jessi dolls are handmade with great care and attention to detail. Natural linens, organic cotton stuffing, felt, yarn, and reclaimed fabrics are used in every doll, making each one unique and special.

Now, these impressive pieces of art can be seen at Michigan Medicine. Check out Mesalic’s work:
