About the Author
Iris Compiet is your guide to the Faultlines, a world filled with faeries and creatures from beyond the veil. A traditional artist and illustrator from the Netherlands, Iris has always known exactly what she wanted to do: paint and illustrate fantastical beings and share them with the world. Storytelling is an essential part of her artwork, and as an artist she strives to lure spectators to make them feel a connection with her work and ignite their imaginations. She draws inspiration from European folklore, mythology, fairy tales, ghost stories and anything from tombstones, Victorian photography, popular movies, and music. She has made a name for herself on Kickstarter with several projects, but most noticeably with Faeries of the Faultlines.
