Hi my name is Iris and 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 book that was successfully funded through Kickstarter.
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.
