All About a Cactus Emoji and Lunch with Jerry Saltz`Wife
Illustrator, New York City

From drawing “Bartender Boogie” to a Fendi fashion sketch to classy bedside table essentials, Pauline de Roussy de Sales is a NYC based illustrator to watch.

Having graduated with a BFA in Printmaking from the Rhode Island School of Design and with clients such a Vogue, Bobbi Brown or Marc Jacobs under her belt, she is a busy freelancer not only working on paper but also getting her hands on ceramics and paintings. Apart from currently working on a major comic release, she loves cats, the color blue, and wearing boots. Her mother is French (so no one wonders about tasteful eye) and her everyday inspiration.

In the art world currently I find most exciting that…
The criteria that defines art is really broad now so I end up seeing so many different things and I find that exciting.

Number of unanswered mails in your account today…
None now, I just took the time to answer them but there were 11 before.

Perfect working outfit…
Almost anything, I hate feeling constricted in an outfit and luckily none of my clothes make me feel that way.


Favourite new brand discovery…

Milk Makeup, just bought three of their products.

Your everyday online art read is…
Sometimes Artsy, though, I don’t really read a lot of articles on my phone but I generally have a crumpled New Yorker or the NY Times in my bag.

Your necessary extravagance is…
It’s hard to choose, I make a lot of exceptions for my extravagances but if I had to say, it would be a good pair of shoes, you can’t really go wrong with that.

Most ridiculous thing you ever bought…

Astro turf, I only used it once.

Ultimate secret after long working hours…
I check up on some eBay bids.

Favourite collaboration of the art- and fashion world…
Well, the actress Candice Bergen paints on people’s designer bags and I really like that fusion, it’s light hearted and fun.

On your office table you always have…

Rose spray from Aesop and Caudalie hand cream.

The most arty city is…
I read somewhere that there are over 1,500 galleries in the city so I’d have to say New York, not to mention all the museums and the constant creative exchange between people here.

Who are the best dressed in the art world…

The gallerists’ and gallerinas’ dogs wear a lot of coats and sweaters I wish I owned.

Describe yourself with three emojis…

Well my favourite emojis are the twinkling stars✨, the cactus 🌵and the crescent moon🌙.
