It's 20th of September, 2018!
Greetings from Vienna! My man and I did a quick holiday there. It was wonderful, museums, cafes,
cat cafes...

Halloween stuff is in my Etsy shop!
Soon I will do a sales for the 'back to school' stuff!

I will be painting some nice, wooden trinket/jewelryboxes.
A perfect, unique  X-mas gift, coming in my Etsy shop.

I am also re-vamping some recycled, nice, wooden chairs,

and hopefully getting them ready before winter comes.
So, busy, busy!

Briar's revies has reviwed lately my Elf graphic novels! Here's the link to his blog:

Let's not forget either my fresh interview on the inspiring book
        blog 'Eclectic Moods' ( will be up as well!

us as elves
Katja Vartiainen has an art background. She is a painter, an illustrator,
 and a storyteller through her graphic novels.

 Her visual inspiration comes from fine arts as well as from the wide
cornucopia of comics, graphic novels, films, music(=everything).
Her literary interests are wide and varied.

With her husband they share a taste for humor, love for cats,
and they get inspired by our tragicomic planet and its curious creatures.

She has dabbled in arts, illustration, teaching, upholstery, painting chairs,
 walls, pictures, and whatnot, and is thus a self-declared multi-dilettantte.

Zusammen mit ihrem Mann teilt sie sich einen ähnlichen
Sinn für Humor. Sie plant weitere Geschichte und Malbücher,
