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 little Mermaid

This doll made out of cotton and then was painted with may layers of different paint, starting green, then blue, then white and purple, then some metallic, I think I tiried almost all grenn-blue-purple colors I had :) I designed this doll, nor much of a design, but still :) Oh, and then I covered her with microbeads, not quite happy with the tail beads, I still thinking if I should put those beads on tail in a first place.Anyway, she is here and all suggestion for improvement are very welcome.

Hugs, Helen
