About Sabien Clement
Sabien Clement (born 1978 in Kortrijk, lives and works in Ghent) made her debut as an illustrator in 2002 with drawings for the poetry book Jij lievert (Amourons-nous, Geert de Kockere), for which she immediately received a book prise. Many books for both children and adults followed, and with this, a long line of prizes. Peau, her first graphic novel, made together with writer Mieke Versyp, was originally published in Dutch by Oogachtend in 2021 and was published in French by éditions çà et là in 2022. Her style cannot be pigeonholed. Sometimes she draws elegant, cheerful lines with a pen, then again she goes wild with paint, brush, paper or scissors. Each time different, but each time with a portion of humor and a touch of poetry.
