Her work and her art
As a painter of childhood, Guylène Saucier draws us into the world of her characters with great charm and a touch of humour. Swarms of chubby-cheeked, wide-eyed children in a world of games and friendship populate scenes in which the artist portrays fond memories.
Guylène Saucier's paintings depict winter scenes with groups of children under snow-laden skies, surprised looks in the summer sun, or a parade of umbrellas on the way to school. Hues softened with grey and simple brushstrokes reveal strength and gentleness in the impressive art of Guylène Saucier.
