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 can see some of my work including painting at my picturetrail site: www.picturetrail.com/elenahg Thank you for stopping by and if you have a moment, I would love to hear your feedback. Thanks again, Helen

One year later...







Last year I did a very small face sculpt, small for me I should say, it is bit less than 1/2 of an inch and then I decided to make more faces lie this one as I wanted to create small figurines and this face was a perfect size for them ( at least in my mind :) ). So, I created a mold using polymer clay and then using this mold I created more faces than I needed :)
I used this face to create different figurines, butterfly (original face, sorry for not very clear picture, still working on it), dragonfly and other creatures (using mold). To create the body for them, I flattened the clay, rolled it and then I stamped it with big texture stamp (finally I found a use for it) and then cutting the pieces I need, I create the body, wings, whatever you need.
A year later...I took pictures and posted it. Slowly but surely :)

Still more faces to go :)

Have a wonderful day!

Beautiful hair brushes ! Anyone?! :)


I was in the painting mood recently and was painting on everything that got into my hands. I found some wooden brushes I bought a while ago and they just had to be painted!
I painted them with acrylic paints and covered with a few coats of lacquer after all.
Great day to All!
