Fabienne Blanc was born and raised in the South of France, where she attended the University of Nice and the Beaux Arts in Toulon. After living and painting in Hawaii for 20 years, Fabienne moved back to the South of France in 2004, where she now resides in Six Fours les Plages.
Known in Hawaii for her large watercolors of the tropical flowers, fruit, and foliage of Hawaii, Fabienne has now adapted to her Mediterranean environment, painting local subjects such as fishing boats, reflections on the ocean, and European flowers.
She has recently added a new element to her watercolor paintings with the use of watercolor pencils, which allow her to get more details and different colors in her work.
