La Scarlatte (Pauline Teunissen) is a freelance illustrator, living in Amsterdam, 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.
Her work ranges from advertising, editorial and publishing to patterns, product and scientific illustrations.
Inspired by human behavior and natural science she is often found in the city, its zoo and its botanical gardens, we she draws an ever growing collection of people, animals and plants.
