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.
Saintpaulias, commonly known as African violets, are a genus of 6–20 species of herbaceous perennial flowering plants in the family Gesneriaceae, native to Tanzania and adjacent southeastern Kenya in eastern tropical Africa.
