Fragile Creatures

Hi, I am Catherina Türk from Hamburg in Germany. I paint very soft and tender watercolors of birds and other creatures I love. I graduated with an MA in Fine Art from Chelsea School of Art in London, but after almost eight years in London I am back in my beautiful hometown Hamburg now where I live and work. At Art School, I built these huge Installation works out of found materials. They were large yet very fragile, and always temporary. The birds were part of the work in those days but soon took on a life of their own as I discovered my love of watercolor painting. I love animals and the natural world, without them, my work would not be there!

    Owner, Creator, Customer Service

    I am an artist living in Hamburg, Germany. I have a degree in Fine Art from Chelsea School of Art in London where I studied sculpture, but I have fallen in love with watercolor painting and the birds who's soul I try to capture with paints!

Production partners

  • Fine Art Printing Company


    For the production of my prints, I have a wonderful partner here in Germany who makes sure all the tiniest, subtlest details of my paintings are reproduced perfectly. Many people do not believe they are prints and not originals!

Shop policies

Last updated on May 10, 2022
Welcome to dearpumpernickel's shop policies page.

A word about my prints: all are professionally produced inkjet prints, reproduced from original drawings and paintings, using Epson Ultra Chrome Pigment archival inks, the best on the market today for perfect and rich reproduction to the smallest detail. My original paintings and drawings, as well as most of my prints, are done on heavyweight and acid free museum quality Hahnemuehle artist's papers which last many lifetimes. Each painting/print comes wrapped very pretty in soft tissue paper and is packaged in a sturdy cardboard envelope with extra cardboard backing.

This Privacy Policy describes how and when I collect, use, and share information when you purchase an item from me, contact me, or otherwise use my services through or its related sites and services.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that I do not own or control, including Etsy or any third party services you access through Etsy. You can reference the Etsy Privacy Policy to learn more about its privacy practices.

Information I Collect

To fulfil your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorised Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information if you contact me directly.

Why I Need Your Information and How I Use It

I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:

- as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfil your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
- if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and
- as necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services; and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.

Information Sharing and Disclosure

Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:

- Etsy. I share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.
- Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
- Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.

Data Retention

I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with my services and as described in my Privacy Policy. However, I may also be required to retain this information to comply with my legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce my agreements. I generally keep your data for the following time period: 4 years.

Transfers of Personal Information Outside the EU

I may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, I may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction. If I am deemed to transfer information about you outside of the EU, I rely on Privacy Shield as the legal basis for the transfer, as Google Cloud is Privacy Shield certified.

Your Rights

If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:

- Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.
- Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.
- Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.
- Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.
