Fabienne is originally from France and has been living in Ireland for many years.

Her background is in Interior Architecture/Design and it’s from there that she developed an interest in shapes and simple forms. She also studied Drawing & Print, Printed Textile Design, Mixed Media, Creative Embroidery in NCAD Dublin (National College Art & Design) .

She has always been fascinated with textiles and was surrounded by fabric and thread early on as her mother was a dressmaker. Textiles and fibres have now become central to her work, not only as a material but as a mean of expression.

Her current art practice is an intuitive response to the feel and history of the material resulting in minimal wall art and sculptural pieces. She combines thead, printing, natural dyeing to explore these connections and to capture tones and textural effects.

Fabienne also lived in Germany and the US, before coming to Ireland.
