Fabienne is the first non-Chinese women to receive her diploma from Sichuan Fine Arts Institute.
She had started her Art education in the Superior School of Fine Art in Toulouse (France).
During the 10 years in China, Fabienne studied the Art of spontaneous painting and calligraphy.
The calligraphy was a total aspiration of abstract lines.
She wanted to understand the secret of the art of the line drawn (Trait in French).

Her new knowledge, experience and observation made her develop a unique style, a form of painting deeply spiritual and personal.
Fabienne follows the same development of many abstract American painters such as Pollock, Tobey, de Kooning...
Her works persist on the full understanding of the line, she will follow the art of Matisse, Dechaux or Degottex.

In her creative process, Fabienne makes sure to have a daily meditation within the landscape.
