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.

Black and White Challenge


We had a very interesting Challenge this year at CNYDAG (Central New York Doll as Art Guild). We had to create a doll using 3 colors only: black, white and any one you want. You can use any variation but as long as it recognizable as white and black. I picked a red color as a third color.
I even draw the pattern myself. I started to crochet the wig but ended up with some sort of hat :) Kazakhs used to wear the hats with such shape :)
All dolls that were done were photographed during the meeting. Unfortunately it is too far from me, so, I sent my doll for photo shoot :) , and we also should have a picture of all dolls from this challenge. Couldn't wait to see what other dolls were created.
In the meantime, let me introduce you Naomi, my entry to Black, White and one color challenge.

New dolls, finishing old projects...


Last month I was working on a few new dolls and was trying to finish the projects started last year, a few years before, I still have more to go :) I also sculpted a few more little faces and did a few things using them.
New dolls were done for a few challeneges, I'll tell about this later.
I want to show ornaments I made using Jacque Uetz mold and her article in Cloth DOll Costume magazine. I started them before last New Year, but finally they are finished. I like this mold, it is so versatile...
Almost forgot. I finally tried Adobe Photoshop that I found I had on my computer....it is a lot of fun but a LOT to learn...
An way, any how. some pictures of the dolls from Jacques instructions and mold:
