Distel faery

by Iris Compiet

As a distel grows older their spininess increases. Older distels are less agile and are easier prey. As a defence, they develop more rigid prickles to ward off danger. In medieval times people believed that a distel faery held the cure against baldness. Distels were collected and sold as a miracle cure, rendering them almost extinct.

Iris Compiet is a traditional artist from the Netherlands. She's an illustrator with international clients, exhibits in galleries around the world and creator of the Faeries of the Faultlines. A book written and illustrated by her, documenting faeries. Storytelling is an essential part of her artwork, and as an artist she strives 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. Her work has been featured in Spectrum, Infected by Art, ImagineFX, and Graphite Magazine.

“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.”
