About the Artwork:

From Faeries of the Faultlines

The Odonata is a carnivorous faery which can be found near bodies of water, preferably marshes. Feeding primarily on the flesh of smaller faeries but when they hunt together they are know to take down larger species of faeries. They lure their victims with seductive pulsing movements of their lower bodies, their flowing hair snaring their prey into a trap from which there is no escape. They possess double rows of razor sharp teeth and even though they do not form a threat to humans, their bite will cause an unsightly rash that can last for weeks. The Odonata have been mistaken for dragonflies on many an occasion.

About the Artist:

(Artist Bio)

Iris Compiet is a traditional artist and Illustrator from the Netherlands. Drawing inspiration from European folklore, mythology, fairytales, ghost stories and anything from tombstones, Victorian photography to popular movies and music she explores the depths of darkness to find the light. Storytelling is an essential part of her 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. She is the creator of a world called Faeries of the Faultlines.

“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.” – Brian Froud
