The Artist Bobbi Barfoot
Bobbi is the artist and producer at Tru Born® and Barfoot Babies.
Bobbi stumbled upon reborning in 2006 while having a yard sale at her home before moving.
A young girl was carrying an incredibly lifelike doll. As someone who LOVES babies, Bobbi was intrigued. She asked about it and the young girls’ grandmother told Bobbi it was called a ‘reborn’. The fires of curiosity started to build. Bobbi got online, and started researching and was mesmerized by what she saw. As a mother of six wonderful children and her love for art, Bobbi knew this was a perfect combination of the two!
A small investment later, Bobbi had all her supplies, and was ready to go! Reborning has come a long way since Bobbi started, and had to sand the hair off of a factory baby, dye the inside of the vinyl, and try tirelessly to root hair into a head that seemed to be made of rock! But she did it and to top it off she sold it! Bobbi made 11 babies that first year, selling each successfully. This was now her passion.
The following year Bobbi got into production, while still improving her skills in reborning she found that she loved production just as much as painting! and away she went. Tru Born® has since produced over 65 kits to date, with more coming.
In 2013, Bobbi took a hair painting class from Evon Nather, and LOVED it. Bobbi had found her niche. Bobbi has her own style of painting and her own style of painting hair that has evolved over time.
Bobbi has been reborning for 11.5 years now and as an artist, NEVER stops learning, never stops growing and is always open-minded.
Bobbi looks forward to sharing what she has learned with each of you!
