I am artist, teacher, coach, and mentor.
I create self-expressive, figurative sculptures (art dolls) that are symbolic, meaningful, thought-provoking, emotional and life-enhancing.
My vision is to assist women to heal and transform their lives through the mindful making of figurative sculptures (art dolls) and art journaling and art journaling processes. I have been doing this work for 25 years.
The art I create, and teach women to create, express emotion, personal meaning and symbolic imagery of the body, mind, emotional spiritual feminine experience.
I develop curriculum and teach classes (in person and online) guiding women
through creative, educational, transformative processes in which they learn how to make self-affirming and self awareness art. These processes invite a woman to create symbolic images that allow her to see and experience her wholeness, trust her intuition, connect to her creative self, and find meaning in her life.
Barb Kobe is featured artist in the

How to Make Healing Dolls for Yourself
Dollmaking can help you to heal at a physical, emotional, mental and spiritual level. The essential process of healing yourself with doll making is one involving creating change so that you can become more conscious and restore your connection to your intuition and your soul. When you are physically ill, in pain, dealing with emotional issues,
or challenged by a life changing event, you can start to heal yourself with doll making by opening up to your inner voices, listening to them, and allowing their messages to emerge through a doll.
