Pauline Teunissen

La Scarlatte (Pauline Teunissen) is a freelance illustrator, living in Haarlem, the Netherlands. Her very delicate pencil and ink drawings are almost always covered with flora and fauna. By blending textures and organic shapes she creates a beautiful combination that moves rhythmically and sometimes repeats as a pattern.

Her work embraces every organism and object, it offers a place for people to wander carefree spaces (where even death is beautiful) and tales of forgotten worlds can be discovered.

Inspired by natural science, folk tales and the (Dutch) Golden Age, she is often found in the city, the zoo and the botanical gardens, where she draws an ever growing collection of animals, people and plants. But her heart truly lies in the dunes and woods between the sea and the city, the perfect place to roam and explore.
