Clementine (UK, b.1985) is a printmaker from Cornwall who explores a fascination with the daydreamed stories and worlds we create when reaching for lost events or loved ones. Her work captures moments in time that pertain to stories, legends and memories and utilises places and objects that hold particular importance to her. Clementine aims to create images that connect her to her audience through shared human experience. Clementine graduated with distinction in MA Authorial Practice: Illustration from Falmouth University in 2019. 

Clementine’s work explores a fascination with the daydreamed worlds we create in longing for events, loved ones and memories that can never happen or perhaps never did. She is known for her fascination and adaptation of Japanese contemporary printmaking and works across all areas of print, although preferring intaglio as a main medium. She also makes prints of dogs.

"...everyone dies twice. The first time is when the heart stops beating, and the synapses in the brain shut down, like a city during a blackout. The second time is when the dead person’s name is uttered, read or thought of for the last time, after fifty or hundred or four hundred years. Only then, is the person really gone, erased from life on Earth."
