isn't she wonderful? this delightful little doll is the creation of the talented Helen Grossman
from her profile " I love to work and experiment with different medias like clay, paper, beads, gourds, different paints and surfaces and it is always something new here to learn. Back in Ukraine I learned a decorative folk art style of painting called Petrikivka named after village it was born. I like to incorporate this painting into my dolls, either made of gourds, cloth, etc."
