Artist biography:
Fab Leydecker was born in Bayonne, France and has always had a passion for nature. Expressing herself through art began in her childhood and boundless creativity has her constantly challenging herself with various subjects and styles of painting. Wildlife is a favourite subject but she also enjoys exploring abstract art in many diverse ways.
In the past, Fab’s art has been juried in Western art auctions in Canada and USA
Fort Calgary recently acquired one of her large pieces to be added to their permanent collection.
Now living in Calgary, Alberta, Fab is inspired by the nearby wildlife and nature. Running, hiking and discovering the outdoors are also passions of hers.
 Artist statement:

My subject matter is animals, wildlife in particular. I love it when my art puts a smile on people’s faces.
Painting, for me, is a fun time. By doing so, I create a world full of colours and humour. People love the energy my paintings bring to their homes. 
My creative process includes acrylic, modelling paste and pastel sticks. I love mixing those mediums to create a mix of wildlife, abstract, and fun colours.
