Hello, there!

Hope you’re all well and warm at the moment. It got pretty cold over here in Bremen by now, phew!  brr - sooo c..  c..  c.. cold! 

Jelka and I had quite a lot of things to do recently. We polished up our Etsy shop and renewed many of our items. There are also beautiful greeting cards available now, showing high-quality art prints of many of my best paintings, sticked on by hand and signed. :)

Jelka’s cute pet hydras, made of wire and soft faux fur, are still our “big seller”. Available in several different colours and variations, these funny fellows and their one-headed dragon relatives already arrived happily in their new homes in many countries of the world. Jelka just added new “breeds” to the shop, showing pretty patterns and extraordinarily soft faux fur.

See you, many greetings and stay creative,






Ich hoffe, euch allen geht es gut und dass euch schön warm ist. Hier in Bremen ist es schon ziemlich kalt geworden, puh!

Jelka und ich hatten in letzter Zeit ziemlich viel zu tun. Wir haben unseren Etsy-Shop aufgemöbelt und viele Artikel erneuert. Es sind jetzt auch schöne Grußkarten mit hochwertigen Drucken einiger meiner besten Bilder erhältlich, per Hand aufgeklebt und signiert. :)

Unser „Verkaufsschlager“ sind nach wie vor Jelkas putzige Haustier-Hydras aus Draht mit weichem Kunstfell, die es in mehreren Farben und Variationen gibt. Diese putzigen Kerlchen, sowie ihre einköpfigen Drachen-Verwandten, sind bereits wohlbehalten in vielen Ländern der Welt bei ihren neuen Besitzern angekommen. Gerade hat Jelka auch neue „Rassen“ mit schönen Mustern und besonders weichem Kunstfell hinzugefügt.

(Beispiele siehe oben)

(Ihr könnt uns natürlich auch jederzeit eine Nachricht schicken und auch ohne Etsy etwas bestellen. :) )

Unser Comic „Rosalies Reise Teil 1: Das Schiff nach Afrika“ ist natürlich ebenfalls noch erhältlich:

Knowledge follows the will to change...

Hi! I'm Rieke, a traditional artist from Germany who grew up drawing comics and cartoons, animals and nature and simply loves to draw and paint. I’m mainly self-taught, but learned how to use acrylic paints at a College of Further Education.

I'm one half of a creative team of sisters who work together closely, so I'm glad to have a spare brain, pair of eyes and hands roaming the house. :D
My older sis, Jelka :iconjerseydays: , creates gorgeous one-of-a-kind art dolls and I'm happy and proud when I can paint their faces and body parts.

Jelka is also a great author and comic artist and helped me to improve most of the artworks you can see in my gallery.
My family and pets, telling stories, humour, learning about animals and the search for chemical-free insight keep me together. :D

I can't tell you about all my projects and ideas because I prefer to show finished works than talking too much. My art tells a lot about me and my personality, anyway. ;)

Interests: caring for my pets (dog & cat), learning about nature and animals, traditional art, music, yummy organic vegan food
Favourite musicians: The Beatles & Paul McCartney's solo works, Kate Bush, Peter Gabriel, Brian Setzer & Stray Cats, Tori Amos, Mari Boine, Sonny Landreth, Neil Innes & The Rutles, Sting, Rory Gallagher
Favourite authors: Terry Pratchett, Cesar Millan, Scott McCloud
Favourite artists: Don Rosa, Mort Drucker, Tome & Janry, Rien Poortvliet, Paul Kidby, André Franquin
Favourite words: Brot (bread), FWOOMP, Phalacrocorax carbo (Great Cormorant), Pi-pa-po, GLOOING :D

Traditional art commissions: Finally made a price list, yay! See my DA journal here:…

:llama: NO LLAMAS, please!! I don't collect them and I feel guilty when I can't return them.
