Rosie M Love

Rosie M. Love is the professional artist behind The Warrior Doll Project. As a survivor of domestic and sexual violence, Rosie founded the project in 2018 following a mental health crisis and the discovery of healing through the creation of dolls. Rosie creates handmade dolls, dressed and adorned as warriors, out of the clothing and fiber scraps of survivors of domestic violence and/or sexual assault. The idea is to create something beautiful and empowering while reclaiming innocence lost with something childlike. Each doll created adds to the “army of empowerment,” paying homage to survivors who are also warriors: having to learn to live with trauma day in and day out. She developed the idea into a workshop that can be shared with fellow survivors in the hopes that they may also find healing and peace through the creation of their very own warrior doll.
