Nicole M. Joubert (Sticky) & Cindy A. Joubert-Kelly (Snidly) have parents who encouraged their strong creative minds & abilities to bloom into unique creative styles. Cindy being the darker of the two, Nicole colorful and lighthearted. They both have endeavors varying from illustrations, paintings, sculptures, and written works. Many of these have been published, contracted or printed.
Outside of SIB.BLING RIVALRY, Nicole's illustrative works is known as: NikkinoxArts  & Cindy: Dreaming Lizard Graphics.
The Sisters collaborated many times but ultimately worked separate. When they were young, they imagined lots, and felt one day they would have a popular T-shirt line like Chip & Pepper  (in the sense of, creative clothing team).
The sisters have made great progress since the 80s. Back then they were known as Joubert Wolf Wear. At this time they painted clothing for local entertainers (Exotic Dancers & Band Members) with acrylic paints.
Through the years the Sisters continue to refined their talents & grow, learning from each other.
The Sister's Mission is:
To have a large line of quality clothing that is both creative & limited with a steady rotation of newer designs. Each item will list for a short time then retire. Your unique article of clothing will not be mass-produced such as a box store product. These beautiful designs are both wearable & collectible pieces of art.
SR will keep creating exciting, unique designs, alongside those in demand. These epic designs are derived from the girls own passions, which in turn touch fellow hobbyists.
