Sabine LeDieu, lead Changling Lab artist and sculptor
Sabine’s passion about our environment and future is her catalyst to create art that increases awareness & inspires thoughtful reflection about environmental issues and concerns.
Consistent to this central theme, she uses alternative materials and found objects in combination with re-used or recycled materials in many of her sculptures.
She is as inspired by the materials that she uses, as she is by the theme of her work.
By playing with form, texture and balance, she creates tension and movement in pieces that softly underline our responsibility to our environment.
Born in Canada, Sabine studied Fine Art at the University of Guelph in southern Ontario. Since moving to the USA in 1998, she has been creating art from alternative materials - sculpting with metal, wire, glass & concrete.
She designs, instructs and practices art in Michigan and Ontario, Canada.
Kimber wishes to portray images, emotions, or messages that cannot be captured in photographs.
All of her work involves research: she is fanatical about accuracy and details. The education of herself and her viewers is one of the things that makes Kimber's work unique and memorable.
Kimber is inspired to participate in projects that include community involvement - seeing a person come alive while viewing or creating artwork is priceless.
She creates everything from murals to miniatures, realistic to abstract - whatever is urging itself to be created at the time. Kimber also work in many different mediums - when a project comes to mind it tells her which medium she should use to create it. To that end, Kimber works in acrylics (using glaze layers), charcoal, pen & ink, watercolor, dry pastel, and more.
She has a degree in Advertising from Michigan State University and works as a marketing manager and graphic designer, along with creating public works of art and various easel pieces.
Kimber's studio is located in mid-Michigan, but her artwork can be found throughout the United States in many private collections.
