Sabien Clement’s (b. 1978) work is characterized by spontaneity. Tenderness, vulnerability, a longing for balance and security – these are the themes running through her work. Her lines are particularly eloquent: they masterfully express emotions, from happiness to grief – often in one and the same picture. Both young and old fall for her illustrations: children especially like the humour in her lines and colours, while adults go for the poetic strength and deeper meaning in her work.
