Frenchy—born Randy Leo Frechette—paints with soul and celebration as he travels the world capturing live music performances, festivals, fundraisers and sporting events with style and finesse. From his palette comes vibrantly colored brush strokes inspired by rhythms and melodies, giving emotions a shape in real time.

While he was born in New England, Frenchy has been both inspired and embraced by the talent-rich city of New Orleans, LA since relocating there in 1997. Frenchy’s artistry in motion has garnered the attention of both the NFL‘s New Orleans Saints (who requested Frenchy as their official team artist from 2001–2007) and the NBA‘s former New Orleans Hornets (who brought him in to paint courtside for every home game from 2004–2006). In 2015, the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival selected Frenchy as the event’s official artist.
