Hi, My name is Helen Grossman. I like to paint, read books, and learning a new forms of art and techniques. I love to learn and experiment with different medias and surfaces, like clay, paper, beads, gourds,it is always something new here to learn and grow. When I am feeling burn out I am reading books or taking my brushes and paint. Back in Ukraine I learned a decorative folk art style of painting called Petrikivka named after village it was born. You also could see some of my work on Instagram, @helldg123. Thank you for stopping by and if you have a moment, I would love to hear your feedback. Helen

Finally I unpacked my sewing machine after moving (back in April we moved to Upstate NY).
I finished a doll for Houston Festival challenge that was sponsored by Lisa Risler ( The doll made using Jill Maas pattern. Her dolls are so full of character :)

The only thing I changed, I reinforced her with dowel that she can stay well as I did not have a heave pellets that required by pattern. A challenge was to use provided fabric and trims and we were allowed to add any embellishment. I have a weak spot for this doll.

See for yourself...

Let me introduce Madam Bridgette and her favorite bags :)

Oh, Madam Bridgette, I am SO pleased to make your acquaintance! You are really wonderful, and your outfit is just lovely! You must tell your creator that she should NEVER think I am too busy for her! I would have been very sad to have missed seeing you tonight because you brought a big happy smile to my face! (Helen, I just love her! You did a great job! I hope to see her in the Houston Festival this month! It will be almost like having YOU here with me!)
