Mireille Vautier was born in France and has been living in New York for a year-and-a half. She received her degree from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs in Paris. Since then, Vautier has been exhibiting her paintings and works on paper in group and solo exhibitions.
Her first one-person show in the United States was in March of 2008. She has also worked as an illustrator for many publishers, and received first prize awards at the International Children’s Literature Fair in Bologna, Italy, and the Salon du Livre, Montreuil, France.
Vautier is currently working on a project involving embroideries on fabric and plastic, initiating a new 3-dimensional approach to her art.
