Born and raised in the South of France, Fabrice Spies started painting at the age of 13. Continually inspired by his locale, his earliest work depicts the colors and movement of lavender fields and Provençal landscapes. Following his move to the US in 1999, Fabrice began a series of historical landmarks and architectural landscapes. His current work incorporates scenes from his current home, with notable references to the Southern California Coast. A desire to not only create, but to challenge his technique in new ways, remain his motivation.
