About this piece:
The lore of Iceland is full of stories about tiny impish creatures and faefolk. After seeing the lush, beautiful landscapes, it became very clear why such legends continue to be perpetuated. I wanted to develop my own variety of faefolk native to Iceland that echoed the moss, lichen, and flowers we witnessed during our trip and imagine these creatures within Iceland's mystic landscapes.
