International French artist Fabienne Delacroix — youngest daughter of the master Naïve painter, Michel Delacroix — is in search of the poetic past.

Her charming scenes of Paris, the French countryside and seascapes reflect the joy, simplicity and sweetness of life, and her work is proudly shown and celebrated around the world (her first exhibit was at age 10!).

A master of color, perspective and light, Fabienne’s style draws inspiration from the Impressionists and early painters of the Belle Époque era (1880-1910), as well as from Naïve movement — a type of visual art by artists with no formal training, often imitated for its childlike simplicity (a famous example of this style was Henri Rousseau).

 “La maison de campagne” (“The country house”) – inspired by the home of our own Editor-in-Chief, Sharon Santoni.

Fabienne’s paintings have distinct airs of both joy and nostalgia, and she likens her take on art to poetry. Her captivating scenes — from colorful boats dotting harbors to wintery Parisian streets to quiet scenes of family life in the country — envelop the viewer in the beauty of her subjects.

Above all else, Fabienne’s goal is to make people smile… and she succeeds.
