Details

    Miquela Raiche is a Canadian visual artist and designer. She graduated with distinction from the Design Studies program in 2006, and spent the next decade working in home furnishing and interior design. In 2016, she moved to Northern California with her family and opened her online shop, Great Honour Goods.  

    Following her move to California, she became fascinated by the region’s native plants and flowers. She began photographing local flower farms and started to experiment with plants and flowers as an artistic medium.

    In 2020, she participated in an online challenge to create faces using foliage. After her first floral portrait—using only the items found beneath her feet—she knew she found a medium she loved. 

    Her interior work has been featured by Domino magazine, ORIGIN magazine, Apartment Therapy and more. Her portrait work was recently shared online by the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, and her floral art has been seen on the cover of Suboart magazine. 

    I love finding the extraordinary in the ordinary. To look a little bit closer at the world around and see something that might otherwise be perceived as nothing. A fallen leaf might be the perfect lip shape, a bloomed poppy the perfect “letter O” or an acorn the most charming hair curl.

    Often times, one little found item will inspire an entire piece of mine.

    My process is a delicate one, and a practice in patience, as I do not glue, tape or secure any part of my work. It’s simply nature, balancing together. In one quick breath, it can all disappear (and it has, many times). I consider it my reminder that everything is temporary, change is inevitable and we should never miss a chance to enjoy what’s in front of us while it’s there.

    After my portraits or flat lays are complete, my favorite part begins. I slowly take it apart, piece by piece, photographing each tiny movement to create a stop motion video. Watching my portraits come together (and apart), dancing across the page brings me so much joy. I really enjoy the entire creative process, and it has become just as important as the final product for me.
