Born and raised in Normandy near The Landing Beaches in north-western France, Gautier developed her love for color and design from nature. Gautier studied at l’Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris. Influenced by the French impressionist painters of the 19th century, she has cultivated a passion for 20th century expressionist painters as well. In 1999 Gautier moved to the States and began her professional career as an expressionist abstract painter. Her travels across all continents have left a lasting impression on her prolific work. Her artwork has been featured on HGTV, by Neiman Marcus, in various galleries, and is part of the Atlanta Fine Home Sotheby's International Realty art collection. Recently Gautier has been the artist selected for the Public Art Project of Milton, GA New City Hall.
