It's 16th of November, 2018!

I've been very busy putting up my own shop AND IT IS OPEN! AND

From November 1 to November 30, adult t-shirts, mugs, and posters to Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Latvia, Lithuania, and Sweden have free shipping!


I have been painting some nice, wooden trinket/jewelryboxes.
A perfect, unique  X-mas gift, coming in my  Etsy shop: KatArtPics

There are couple of new paintings, my Expansion-series on Artmajeur.(Link above)

The chairs-well, in process.
I'm in the process of revamping my webpage as well!
And just as stated in Goodreads, that at the moment I am not doing literary work,
 but will - well, the same day, I actually had a great idea inspired by my husbands sort film project.
 So, I AM doing a short comic, black & white- and DAAAAARK.

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


Let's not forget either my fresh interview on the inspiring book
        blog 'Eclectic Moods' (ministryofmagik.blogspot.com) 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,
