Myriam Rousseau, working as an illustrator under the alias Muya, is from the province of Quebec. She left her native Canada to study Fine Arts in Spain and she currently lives in Argentina with her family.
A lifelong lover of sketchbooks and Hispanic culture, she managed to combine her two passions by exploring several artistic fields in different Latin cities.
She experienced the cartoon film industry by joining an animation studio, worked as an editorial graphist for a history magazine, collaborated with a contemporary gallery on several street art exhibitions, tattooed her botanical inspired images under the supervisor of her mentor and more recently invented her own personalized textile prints.
This rich career has nourished her style; and today she lives from her illustrations work which is inspired by Art Nouveau, encyclopedic engravings, old school tattoos, vintage children’s books, retro fashion advertisements, but also… by the overflowing imagination of her six-year-old daughter!
