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 a mainly self-taught artist, 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.
My older sis, Jelka
, creates gorgeous one-of-a-kind art dolls and I'm happy and proud when I can paint their faces and body parts.
Since Jelka is also a great author and comic artist, she helped me finishing 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.
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 (2 dogs, 1 cat), learning about nature and animals, traditional art, music, yummy organic vegan foodFavourite musicians:
