About The Artist

Having lived her early life in Warsaw, Poland, Barbara Kobylinska received a master’s degree in graphic design and later a master’s in costume and stage design at Warsaw’s Academy of Fine Arts. Since then, she has been an art teacher; a children’s book illustrator; a poster, puppet, and stage designer; and finally, a sculptor. For the last 25 years, she has worked in her Virginia Beach studio, creating large (4–6 ft.), colorful ceramic birds, bugs and flowers that mirror the natural world with an abstract, fanciful twist.

“Barbara Kobylinska approaches her art with both a studied sense of design and an unapologetic trust of intuition. Her artistic training and experience, has afforded her a solid understanding of structural form and language of shape, mass and proportion. Barbara Kobylinska is adventurous and inventive. With humor and a sophisticated, playful intelligence, she invites us to share her delight in the unexpected.”
