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

Fairy Swap

We had a fairy swap at FDA group. My partner was a wonderful Artist Jan Demetralis.
Pictures in this post are of the dolls I sent to Jan. The fairy doll I sent to her was made using...guess what?...right! a gourd :) and body built around it from polymer clay and then everything was painted with acrylic paints. As for her hair and wings - I had some feather boa that I used.
Thank you Sherry for organizing this swap!
