Fabienne Good, born in Ontario, Canada, 1980


In 1999 Fabienne Good left the family farm she grew up on, and followed her dreams through the OCAD University, graduating with a BFA and all kinds of new skills, dreams and ideas. She spent the next four years venturing the world as a self-sufficient artist. In these four years of “freedom”, Fabienne found herself working and travelling in Australia, teaching art classes in New Zealand, the Caribbean, South America and Canada. She has planted over 300,000 trees, hitch-hiked across Canada, worked as an assistant to various artists and took part in various art shows. Fabienne has shown her work at several venues including the CONTACT Photography Festival, the Toronto Outdoor Art Show, The Artist Project, the Drake Hotel, the Gladstone and quaint alternative scenes around the world. She has won several awards and sponsorships. Most recently she completed her MFA at the Lucerne University in Switzerland and now works as an art educator while also working on her own artistic projects.
