The dance of the Sakura or Cherry Blossom faeries heralds the beginning of spring.
It is the sign of hope blossoming from the cold earth.
After the long dark days of winter they welcome the first rays of sunshine as nature awakens around them. They are the first to fly.
It is said that when you are fortunate enough to catch a glimpse of these faeries dancing upon the wind your year will be filled with good fortune.
These fragile faeries remind us to cherish life and see beauty in the smallest of things.
They remind us that life is short and the days go by so fast when we can no longer see the simpler things in life.
Listen to their songs, close your eyes and enjoy life, celebrate it every single day.

‘As someone who has attempted to paint faeries and other-worldly beings for fifty years, I know how difficult it is to be true to the subject matter. 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. Her nuanced lines vibrate with spiritual energy, chasing and ultimately expressing the illusive nature of these liminal beings.

Her work is infused with limpid washes of colour that are seemingly taken from a paintbox of hues gathered from the Aurora Borealis – eloquent in describing the ever-changing qualities of Faery. Here are beings as witty and merry as an Irish Cluricaun as well as those of rare beauty that touch the heart and lift the soul.’

– Brian Froud

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
