Fabienne Leydecker is building a reputation as one of Canada's unique new artists. She was born in the town of Bayonne, in the Pays Basque region of France. At an early age she became fascinated with nature and began drawing wildlife. By age 14 she attended college in Chantilly for equine studies. Her love of horses and her passion for art enabled her to create beautiful sketches of horses in various disciplines from racing and foxhunting to jumping and western art.
Recent works incorporate a technique where Fabienne paints on metal foil. “People tell me that they feel the painting is alive because the colors vary depending on the time of day. I use a very thick and glossy varnish that accentuates even more the change of colours.”
In 2012 and 2013, Fabienne was selected as one of the few artists to participate in the Calgary Stampede Western Art Auction.
