Michelle Caron-Pawlowsky is a multidisciplinary artist from Montreal who works primarily with photography, installation, drawing, text, and video.

She is currently pursuing a BFA in Photography at Concordia University in Montreal. She has received numerous grants to carry out arts initiatives both inside and outside of the university. Caron-Pawlowsky has been in a number of exhibitions in Quebec and has been published in Stonecoast Review, BAD NUDES, Shabby Doll House, L’Organe, and more. She was chosen as part of the 2021 Artch cohort, and she will be an Emerging Artist in Residence at Franconia Sculpture Park in Minnesota from September to November of this year.
