…my 2 original tree drawings in their place of honor, hung at my newly painted blue wall in my flat! ⁠
Each drawing has a dimension of 1m x 70cm (it was pretty hard to find such large frames and carry them home by public transport I can tell you) – I had originally drawn them as part of my large forest panorama, which is more than 4 meters long – these are the first two of 6 consecutive tree drawings. The artworks are entirely done by pencil and it took me about 3 weeks to finish each of them. Don’t they fit well with that deep blue background? ✨🌙

PS: The tree drawings are also available in my online shop as high quality art prints (separate and panorama) and postcards (link in bio). ⁠🌿

This year I have finally done some major home improvement and painted the wall in my bedroom dark blue. 🌙🌑 Best decision! I had this planned for years but was so afraid I would fall from the ladder (turns out I didn’t) or mess up the edges because my walls are so high. Fortunately the results are pretty awesome and that deep sea blue fits perfectly with my vintage furniture (and my art, more of that in my next posts :)! Do you like it?⁠

Mali Losinj on Losinj island. We found a pretty palazzo with a balcony. Very charming! ⁠The town's houses are built into the steep hill with lots of stairs and narrow alleys. No matter where we were, we could pretty much see the Adriatic sea from both sides. ⁠🐟💧

Hi everyone in Berlin!
I am temporarily subletting my desk space in our beautiful gallery office community graumalerei in Neukölln for the period of October 11 to November 25, 2022, as I will be traveling. The total rent for the 6,5 weeks is 340€ (warm & all inclusive). The desk workspace is about 1,5m wide, I rent including office chair of course. The address is Reuterstr. 82, 12053 Neukölln.
We can also agree on a shorter rental period, for example of 1 month/4 weeks, for this the rent would be 210€.

In our gallery we are 4 very friendly artists from Germany, Finland and England, working in illustration, animation and film editing. Among ourselves we speak German and English. Freelancers, artists and also people from other fields of work are of course welcome. If you feel like just trying out coworking and appreciate a quiet working atmosphere in a small circle with nice people, then our studio space is just right for you!

Our office community is located in the front building first floor and consists of 2 workrooms (each 12 sqm big) and a gallery space with a shop window facing the street, which is used for joint exhibitions or as an extra workspace (15 sqm big). We also have a communal kitchen which is suitable for cooking.
My desk is in the front workroom, which I share with fellow artists Anna (D) and Robin (UK) (it opens off the gallery space). Our wifi is fast and reliable. The subway stations Hermannplatz, Rathaus Neukölln and Boddinstraße are all within walking distance from the gallery.
If you are interested, please leave a comment here or dm!

This summer I went travelling again, starting in Croatia. We did island hopping around Kvarner Bay and ended up on laid back otok Cres. 🌾On the local town square we were actually shopping for groceries but when I came across this palace built in Gothic Renaissance style of course I had to stop and draw it! I really liked the shape of the windows...⁠

Last weekend I presented my new artwork during the festival in our gallery ! In our group show ‘Welcome Rabbit’ / ‘Hoş Geldin Tavşan!’ we examined our personal coping mechanisms to deal with the past pandemic. 🐇

My black and white hand drawn piece ‘I am going to bump my head off’ deals with my experience of donating blood for the first time in my life. In this way, I wanted to counteract the general paralysis and helplessness of the pandemic: As long as I am healthy, I can at least help other people and the overburdened healthcare system with my donations. This summer I was at my 4th blood donation in a row and afterwards - this has never happened to me before! - I fainted, hit my forehead badly and ended up in the emergency room myself. Now I will probably keep a scar that will always remind me of the time of the pandemic and my personal coping strategy. I am going to bump my head off! 🩹🤕⚡️
(Here are the different stages of my drawing and the final art work framed in our gallery). Thanks to for the participation!

My last drawings from my stay at Naturpark Sächsische Schweiz. We went hiking along the shores of the Elbe river, then up to the steep Schrammsteine and on to Großer Winterberg and Kipphornaussicht. There was nobody around, the rocks all warm from the day’s sunshine and we could watch the sunset over the river and Festung Königstein. 🌄 And of course have a picnic!

More drawings from Elbsandsteingebirge (Sächsische Schweiz): Here’s a sketch of the old woodframe house that is part of the beer garden of the old watermill in Schmilka. You wouldn’t suspect is, but the second floor actually has a sauna. 🔥The drawing took me about an hour until the sun was setting over the Elbe river, here are the different stages. Magic! ✨

In December I went to see The Breakfast Club at the pop-up thf cinema at Tempelhofer Flughafen 📽. It was great to spend time in that historic airport hall while watching such a movie classic. I especially loved the typography of the Restaurant sign (long gone of course). Thanks for joining me ! ✈️

Lately I’ve been walking along the Panke river in Wedding quite often and everytime I come across the architectural ensemble of Luisenbad I have to stop and just look at the pretty mosaic-like patterns on the historic facade. 🪟 You can also see the different stages of my drawing as it evolved from sketch to finished. From my Berlin diary.

My new Sydney map is also now available as a postcard! 🌏✉️
This hand drawn postcard shows the capital of New South Wales and the largest city in Australia and Oceania.

Also I have illustrated many popular destinations within the city like Bondi Beach, Manly Beach, Luna Park, the Sydney Harbour and many more.
It's the perfect farewell gift for someone travelling to Sydney or coming back – make someone smile by sending him one if the postcards or put them in a frame for your home decor!

Hello and welcome to my artist page!

I'm an illustrator from Berlin, Germany – I love drawing and creating ever since I can remember, so it has been only natural for me to become an artist and share my work with you. Here you can find my latest illustrations, hand-drawn maps, panoramic drawings and work-in-progress snapshots. Feel free to linger!

One of my biggest passions and source of inspiration is traveling. After living in New Zealand for my studies I have moved back to my home city Berlin. Most of my artwork is naturally based on my travel experience (like my illustrated maps), but I also love to draw from nature and animals. I get very absorbed in details, and some of my panoramic drawings can get up to 4 m long!

On my website www.theresagrieben.com you can find a wider selection of recent and older illustration work. I also sell my illustrations as prints and postcards in my Etsy online shop, please take a look: https://www.etsy.com/shop/TheresaGrieben. Fur further reading: I appear on the American Etsy Blog as a FEATURED SHOP, with background info about my artistic development and my products: https://blog.etsy.com/en/featured-shop-theresa-grieben/. You're also welcome to follow me on Instagram @theresagrieben for my latest illustrations and frequent stories!

If you’re interested in a collaboration of custom map commission, please contact me at: [email protected]

A look back to when I visited pretty Himmelpfort close to Fürstenberg. 🚲🌅 The medieval brewery of the historic monastery had once burnt down but its gothic walls are still standing. It’s a really nice place between lakes to spend an afternoon (there’s also a christmas santa post office 🎄📯). From my Brandenburg sketchbook.
