my sister…

our sister – we were five sisters – now we are four

This summer 2015, a sunny august … in the garden.

My sister Bibbi and I had a sketch-session in the garden under a small shady apple tree … we knew what was going on… two weeks later Bibbi died.

Thursday, 8/20 2015, my highly and deeply loved sister Bibbi left the earth.

Bibbi, so beautiful, so amazing talented … something the world missed because Bibbi made herself visible only to the family and immediate circle of friends.

I will miss her so much … to see her, to hear her and laugh with her!

Bibbi has always been my first choice of person to show my work … she had a deep, clear and unique picture vision … the best!

Bibbi also had a great knowledge when it came to words, language … all kinds of texts. When she very rarely wrote … it was fantastic!

Bibbi, Bibbi …  I am deeply grateful to all our moments, days, laughter and tears!

Miss you and love you forever!

Your adoring sister Zeppa

That day… that late summer day… when we all found us in another sphere.

In the twin-sister garden… that day Bibbi left.

Bibbi didn´t believe in life after death! Now… I wonder…

I can´t believe that she don’t exist at all. I believe that somewhere – in an other dimension – her spirit is alive!

I wish I could time-travel to this day, to this beach and meet Bibbi there… because sometimes I dream that she is there!

I have made a sketch from a photo… mixed with my own inner vision – Bibbi in Spain, like 9 years old in a all to big bathing suit in a non bating suit fabric. She and her twin sister were so very thin in this age but full of super energi and curosity – they were kind of a dream team – so incredible sweet! And they had an admirer named “Koftan” which they hung out with a lot.


… about 4-5 years later

… same place in Spain, just another beach!

1977 – 15 year – happy and on holidays

… when life as a grown up began, with a lot of wonderful & exciting possibilities!
