My name is Clémentine, I’m a French illustrator painting with watercolour and inks from my little studio in Bondi.
I’m inspired by a wide range of experiences. By Nature first, the original artist. By empowered women, surfing, tactile arts, watercolour of course, but also clay. Travel, anything Japan and Hawaii.
The illustration I painted for Jo is inspired by the beautiful Australian Native plants and flowers that I discovered after moving to Australia.
I wanted this artwork to be very graphic, like a mix between a vintage botanical illustration and a tattoo sketch.
To achieve the level of details I used a very thin brush with ink on a large canvas. Nothing digital.
