Andrée Bordeaux Le Pecq then participated in numerous exhibitions, and obtained her first awards as a painter, engraver, and cartonnier. Her artistic career asserts itself and numerous exhibitions, both in Paris and abroad, consecrate the talent of "a delicate and sensitive artist, although virile by the strength of expression". She is inspired by Brittany and the ocean. She participated in the Salon des artistes français, the Salon d'automne and the Salon de Nika-Kaïau in Japan. We distinguish three periods in her production: a realistic period, a cubist period and a colorist period.
We note to her credit numerous decorations of school groups, in Laval, Tours, Blois and Saint-Brieuc. She founded the Henri Rousseau Museum of Naive Art in Laval. She also worked for the Mobilier National (Beauvais factory), executed numerous tapestry cartoons for Aubusson and illustrated books.
Among her many paintings, we can cite Scènes de plage or Bus 52 under the snow. His works are present in many museums, in Reykjavik, Tel Aviv, Mexico and Tokyo.
