Pauline Petit is a Vancouver based artist, and owner of Studio 26 Artist Services, a business that caters to the needs of contemporary artistic practices. Pauline was born and raised in France, and moved to Canada in 2007. She received her Bachelor of Arts in Visual Arts at the University of British Columbia in 2013. Her work focuses on the mediation of language, spoken and visual. She concerns herself with the historical, cultural, and often unacknowledged narratives inherent to language.

Through her business, Pauline has the privilege of working and consulting with award-winning artists such as Dana Claxton, Christos Dikeakos, Barrie Jones, and Terri-Lynn Williams-Davidson. In 2017, she was one of the winners of the Magenta Foundation Flash Forward Competition. Pauline would like to acknowledge that she lives and works on the traditional, ancestral and unceded territory of the Coast Salish peoples–Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), Stó:lō and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) Nations
