Art by Iris Compiet

Hi, my name is Iris. I'm an artist living and working in the Netherlands.


Ever since I was young I've been fascinated by Fantasy and the Other Worlds, for this reason I think creating a ‘sense of wonder’ is at the core of my work. 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. 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.

Welcome, if you are interested in behind the scenes or my process you can find all of that here
