Hi my name is Iris

I’m a traditional artist and Illustrator from the Netherlands. At the age of seven I knew exactly what I wanted to do when I grew up… paint and draw fantastical beings. I enjoy working on projects ranging from picture books to gallery art, concept art and even sculpting. Storytelling is an essential part of my artwork, and as an artist I strive to lure in the spectator, to make them feel a connection to the work and open a gateway to their imagination to ignite it even further. I created a world called Faeries of the Faultlines. A glimpse into that world can be seen in a book with the same title. Drawing inspiration from European folklore, mythology, fairytales, ghost stories and anything from tombstones, Victorian photography to popular movies and music.

I explore the depths of darkness to find the light

Interested in seeing more of my work?

“Iris Compiet’s work is an astonishing and masterful revelation of the Faery Realms.
She is an artist who, with stunning alacrity, reveals the fleeting personalities
of the normally unseen.”
