Who am I?
I’m Jolanda, the sole creator behind Den Gröna Fenixen. In 2018 I moved from the Netherlands to Northern Sweden. I have always been a creative person, but Sweden suddenly gave me the possibility to learn, explore and develop my creativity. Out of this Den Gröna Fenixen was born!
As the child of a very creative mother I grew up trying to make everything my eyes could see. In the past I’ve studied and worked both with biology and Nordic history, so a lot of my creative work is fueled by that part of me.
Besides crafting, my creativity flows to cooperation with both animals, people and music, so feel free to check out the Animal and Dance sections of this website.
