Art and drawings inspired by plants and animal life, patterns and illustration for licensing portfolio by La Scarlatte aka Pauline Teunissen

A LITTLE ABOUT ME

Hello, I'm Pauline.

I'm a freelance illustrator, living in Haarlem, the Netherlands. I live in an old pastorage with a curious toddler, an Italian lover and a redhaired cat.
I create delicate, detailed botanical and animal themed hand-drawn designs.  By blending textures and organic shapes I create a beautiful combination that moves rhythmically and sometimes repeats as a pattern. My 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. You can often find me exploring the dunes and woods near my house, or looking for small critters by the sea.
