Fabienne Arietti was born in Marseille, France in 1956. She graduated in 1973 from ENSAAMA of Paris. Fabienne has developed a unique style reminiscent of the ‘old masters’. She is devoted to the image and has infinite patience and perseverance, although she claims she constantly fights an inner struggle for perfection.

Her method utilises crushed minerals and organic pigments to make her colours. She then applies layer upon layer of glaze to transparencies, usually between 30 to 50 coats or more. This results in enamelled colour that resembles ‘old’ varnish Her paintings are in galleries around the world including Paris, New York, Miami, and Venice.
