With her usual stunning richness in detail, the British illustrator Katie Scott has created three designs of wallpaper for us.
Whether her subject has been shells, trees, or animals, the wallpapers display a breathtaking representation of both the animal and botanical kingdom.
Working with everything from internationally regarded publications such as the New York Times, over Norwegian medical journals and the Japanese avant-garde flower artist Azuma Makoto, to big fashion brands, the British illustrator Katie Scott has made quite the name of herself. She has illustrated three books on animals, evolution and the fantastic world of botany, which are all highly acclaimed – and not only among the curious children, they were intended.
With a style entirely her own, the renowned 30-year-old British illustrator Katie Scott works from
her studio in northern London creating stunning illustrations turning into wallpaper, posters and
books for significant internationally regarded publications and fashion brands to avant-garde
artists and medical journals. With her richness in detail, Katie displays her endless fascination with
fauna and flora in her classic, yet modern artworks.
What inspires me the most is the natural world, either from documentary, books or gardens. But I
am also inspired by the art that has come from our human thirst for understanding and decoding
the natural world. To me, diatoms are wondrous, but Ernst Haeckel's drawings of diatoms are
equally amazing,” she says and continues:
“I love the libraries that I have access to in London, the Wellcome Collection and the Natural
History Museum. When I am at a loss creatively, I go there and immerse myself in exhibits,
dioramas or old paintings dating back hundreds of years.”
