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.

Vera G starring in "Butterfly kisses"


Let me introduce you to a new rising star - Vera G. She was nominated "The best drama actress" for her role in "Butterfly kisses".

He-he-he...It was a challenge created by Mary Tressler. We have to create a movie star, back in to 20-30th, create the costume and come up with the name and movie title.

I really enjoy this pattern. The doll is about 15" height, delicate and well proportioned ( I am referring to pattern) , staying on its own and the pieces are coming together like a charm...

Hugs, Helen

Four Seasons Challenge Dolls








The challenge is over, so, I can post pictures of my dolls that I sent for Four Seasons Challenge organized by Doll Crafter and Costuming magazine. Doll Pattern was provided by Cyndy Sieving.

One doll is for Winter and another one for Spring Season. Winter doll is holding teady bear that I needle felted. It was one of my first felting projects.

Speaking of Winter season, today we've got some snow, the first snow in this season :)
