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

A new adventure - a Holiday Bazaar



I needed to try that. Our fire department hosted a holiday bazaar and I decided to participate. I did not count on any sale for a lot of reasons, but thought it would be fun to do it anyway and some exposure for dolls. OK, we had exposure :) and one sale, so, it was more than I expected. I enjoyed seeing reaction of the people to the dolls. Some of them were laughing finding resemblance in the dolls to their friends or themselves. I made some ornaments which I will show you , and those were making people smile as well.
Anyway, below are ornaments that I made. I cut different shapes that will resemble tree ornaments or just any shape I like and then I attached a needle sculpted faces, no back to the head, just a tread pulled tight and then the fun began. Drawing and creating a character. When the face was painted, then I decorated the doll based on what she was telling me.
Have fun meeting my ladies! and let me know what do you think, please.
