Malika Rousseau is a multidisciplinary artist from the Outaouais. During a trip to Nicaragua in 2006, she discovered and learned the basics of jewelry. In 2008, she began classes at the Montreal jewelry school. She perfected her career and completed, in 2018, a Bachelor’s degree in visual and media arts at the University of Quebec in Montreal in order to nourish her curiosity for the visual arts community. During her studies, she became interested in the intrinsic notion of materials and developed projects that revalorized the notion of craftsmanship in direct contact with matter. She participated in numerous exhibitions and received several distinctions. In 2019, she finished her DEC at the jewelry school transformed by her studies in the arts. Malika wishes to continue her exploratory approach and deepen her knowledge with the help of future artist residencies where she wishes to perfect her creations combining ceramics and silver. Since the summer of 2021, she has been teaching jewelry at the Westmount Visual Arts Center and enjoys being able to pass on her passion.
