Michelle Gauthier is a graduate of the Ontario College of Art and Design (OCADU) where she earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Criticism & Curatorial Practices. She also has a graduate certificate in Culture & Heritage Site Management from Centennial College. She started out as a painter at 13 years old, but has since moved on to work mainly in embroidery. It is because of this change in mediums that she feels very passionately about challenging the notion that works of the ‘fine art’ are more valuable than those of ‘craft’. Inspired by plants and flowers, personal experience, and the work of other artists, she creates a strong juxtaposition of form and content. In doing so, she hopes to help facilitate conversations around societal norms on controversial subjects, as well as to inspire others to see ‘ordinary’ things differently.
The garden pansy is a type of large-flowered hybrid plant cultivated as a garden flower. It is derived by hybridization from several species in the section Melanium ("the pansies") of the genus Viola, particularly Viola tricolor, a wildflower of Europe and western Asia known as heartsease.
