Exploring New Territory with Sarah Clement

Vancouver-based artist and illustrator Sarah Clement has been inspired by nature and the world around her for as long as she can remember. Her whimsical and detailed illustrations mix the colourful freedom of ink with the more structured lines of cut-paper, producing artwork that is uniquely her own.

In August 2015, Sarah embarked on an adventure. Along with 9 other artists, she traveled with The Canadian Wilderness Residency, a residency designed to bring artists of different disciplines together in a wilderness setting. For 3 weeks, the artists braved the great outdoors as they worked together to canoe the Yukon from Whitehorse to Dawson City. Their goal? To explore new perspectives surrounding their Canadian identity and their own personal artistic expression.

We would like to give a special thanks to The Canadian Wilderness Residency for both providing us with footage from the trip and for curating this uniquely Canadian experience for artists.
