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 awareness in simple and geometric forms. She also studied Visual Art Practice in NCAD Dublin.

She uses printmaking, natural dyeing and thread work as a mean to develop her artwork. The use of sustainable, natural  and plant based materials is fundamental to her work. Her current art practice is an intuitive response to the feel and characteristics of the material resulting in minimal wall art and sculptural pieces.

Growing up in the west of France, she was fascinated with textiles as her mother was a dressmaker. Natural fibres have now become central to her work, not only as a material but as a mean of expression.

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