About wandklex

On Etsy since 2015

wandklex - my colourful life in a few lines (and freckles and dots and colourlines)

Whether it's portraits of pets or children, watercolours with baby snouts, women's faces and men's pictures, illustrations with street scenes or wild animals, landscape painting, still lifes or objects such as motorcycles and airplanes: I paint after (almost) every photo motif and shy away from almost nothing.

My wall blots (=klexe) are available in many variations and formats; from well-behaved to blatant, from exclusive to klextreme, directly on the wall or on paper. In addition to painting on request, there are also works in the shop that are ready for dispatch "to go", which I wanted to be painted for the sake of pure work (pure klexual drive!). One calls my colorful nonsense also sometimes affectionately "klexual therapy for depressed walls"^^

But it all started quite harmlessly!

Of course, art was my favourite subject even as a child. That's what you could see in my school supplies: in boring math classes I preferred to paint pictures of beautiful women from advertisements with the pencil on the edge of the notebook, or I drew animal pictures and dance scenes with a pencil instead of dealing with geometric bodies properly? 12 years ago I created my first commissioned painting, and there was also a fee: an ice cream!
Nevertheless, despite all the training hours, I was still far away from the later professional artist, and something solid was learnt, I ended up in the public service. Painting always ran parallel with unbroken passion. But a circle of friends with a very high level of artistic commitment and a lot of targeted training and further education helped me to keep on growing.

In 1997 my daughter came into my world, and with her my artistic activities changed from paper to the woodchip wallpaper of her baby room. There I painted my first wall painting with a watercolour box.
For our visitors children, it was really cool that the walls were painted everywhere (which was forbidden at home!). That's what they wanted - orders came in.
Then it all happened pretty fast. At the same time, my current brand and artist name was born: suddenly I was just the "wandklex" everywhere.
The first wandklex website went online in 2002; it was meant to be a virtual gallery for my friends. But also about that I was suddenly contacted by interested parties. Soon the whole thing broke the boundaries of a part-time job. I had to decide - office or freelance work?
I knew what I chose with courage, of course.

In 2008 I officially founded "wandklex®" and have been working as a freelance artist under this label ever since. Especially the solid administrative education was an ideal basis to establish myself professionally and well organized, my inclination to Prussian discipline did the rest to reach my business and ideational goals.

And because I was just about to turn my life upside down, I packed up painting material, daughter and animals and changed my place of residence to make a dream come true: to be close to the sea. So let's go from the deep south to Northern Germany, into "Klexile".

I am now in Ratzeburg/Schleswig-Holstein, in the Duchy of Lauenburg, just outside the gates of the marzipan city of Lübeck. The Baltic Sea is my lovely neighbour.
In the years from 2011 onward, the whole thing shifted away from mural painting and back to studio work. Since then I have been producing mainly custom-made paperwork, which I send all over the world. I opened the first small online shop for this in 2008, and now etsy is an even more international shop. I know almost all my models only by photos via email. I love the internet, which allows me to work in this uncomplicated way!

My studio is located in a still active station building, where everything about my business takes place - accompanied by a bunch of pets..
In front of the front door trains leave every hour, and from my desk I can watch the passengers at the track (a rather comfortable job, which my animal coworkers usually take away from me from the window sill).
Here I create my colorful mischief - and I can still think of something!

One of my loyal regular customers once wrote me
"Here with you, wishes are fulfilled that you didn't even know you had. You should change your job title to "full-time happiness maker."
I'm very happy about this and I never get tired of loving my multi-coloured profession with passion!

Heartfelt greetings from the colourful railway station studio
Your wandklex® Ingrid

Frequently asked questions
How long are the waiting times for an individually commissioned painting?

► the current waiting time for individual commissioned works, which I produce on order according to your custommotif/photo up to 18 weeks depending on your choice and to the current order situation (acc. to: April 2020), depending also on the effort and scope of your order, calculated from your payment - plus mail delivery time. Please contact me in advance, if it has to be faster, I will check if I can reschedule my work plan in urgent cases.
Please note: I work and deliver uncharmingly only against prepayment and do not start with the work until the payment has been made.
I always process my orders in the order in which the bookings are completed.

When will my order be shipped, does that work on a certain desired date?

Work ready for dispatch goes out immediately after payment.
Each delivery has a certain POST RUN TIME as indicated in the listings, or plus up to 4 weeks (abroad).
I ship every working day (Mon-Sat) and only with DHL or Deutsche Post, always with tracking,
If I have to make a job to order first, I have to add the production time (see "Waiting times" above).

Gift wrapping and packaging

My work is always pretty and safely wrapped like gifts. As far as you still book "gift packaging", then I do this not only particularly beautifully, but additionally also still with pretty handwritten card and individual gift style.
You can enter a personal message for the desired text in the order process.
By default I will of course always send you a printed receipt (which may not be so good if the package is opened as a gift from someone else :-)
Please tell me therefore better expressly before in addition, if I should NOT enclose the invoice receipts/payment receipt in the package.

what is important for my reference photos?

A single photo is usually enough for me as a template; and that doesn't have to be of professional quality. Often a relatively blurred photo with an expressive pose is even more suitable than a technically perfect picture. Eat well and importantly that the eyes of the living being are visible.
If you have old paper photos, I recommend simply taking them with a reasonably good camera in high resolution - make sure that there are no reflections or reflections on the picture - and then simply email me the photo from the photo. I can handle it!
The following applies to all photo templates: Please make sure that you have the copyrights to the images or that you own all rights to use them.

I don't have a common picture of my models, but I want them painted together on one picture - what can I do?

No problem! If several portraits - people and/or animals - are to be shown together on one work, it is not necessary to have one photo of all of them together.
I can easily compose it from several individual photos. In this case I would send you a photomontage simulation of the composition in advance by email, so that you can coordinate the composition together with me.

and what else is important, especially for commercial customers from Germany

To commercial clients subject to German legislation: Please remember to attach the invoice to your annual report to the Künstlersozialkasse. More information on www.kuenstlersozialkasse.de or at your tax consulting firm

►wandklex® is a registered trademark at the german DPMA

Please also respect:

I am pleased about your recognition of my work. If you want to distribute my work in social media by other means than, for example, just by unchanged, unprocessed sharing of my photos, please ask me BEFORE, wait for my answer and in any case please state my label name "wandklex Ingrid Heuser". The copyright of my works and pictures lies exclusively with me or with the respective photographer/copyright holder/image database with whom I have concluded a usage or license agreement.
Copying, printing, duplicating and especially any commercial use of my work e.g. as print, postcard, tattoo artwork or the like require my express consent and authorisation.

Custom and personalized orders

► How does it work with the commissioned works after your photo or with motive of your choice?
Uncomplicated: simply book the desired format here in the wandklex shop in the category https://www.etsy.com/shop/wandklex?section_id=20079402
(I will be happy to advise you beforehand!), send a template photo directly in the order overview by message or by email to chefin[at]wandklex.de.

While working on your picture you will receive at least one photo in advance for smaller formats, for larger formats DINA5 and larger you will receive 1 - 3 "work-in-progress" previews of the most relevant work phases by email. So you are "live" at the creation of your BiIldes and can look over my shoulder. (this is also fun!)

Why do commissioned works cost you so much more than comparable already dispatch-ready free works, which are offered here in the shop?

Above all, because commissioned work takes up several times as much of my working time as free work, which I only have to agree with myself.
Most of the extra work goes into the coordination before and during the work, into the documentation of the work and into very transparent and detailed communication with you.

You will notice how intensively and comprehensively I take care of your order before, during and after production, so that you receive exactly what makes you and everyone involved happy.☺

In addition, often material that is not in stock has to be purchased first - and I have to observe and fulfil time, organisational and content requirements.
