Our mothers features 21 delightful drawings by Clémence DesRochers, put into words by her dear friend René Jacob. This story in images evokes the life of one mother, but is perhaps that of every mother. 

Clémence DesRochers and René Jacob enjoy a deep friendship. For Our mothers, the artist turned to one of Jacob's photo albums for inspiration. She did the drawings; he wrote the texts. Clémence DesRochers's personal work, imbued with naiveté, goes beyond song, poetry, and humor. Her drawings are like snapshots of Québec society, as depicted through René Jacob's family, his mother, his childhood memories… and his cats!
