In the 1970s, Sylvie Rochette became involved in the arts and took metal casting courses at Jean-Paul Garneau's studio. During this period, she designed works integrated into architecture, for example at the Maison de la culture Notre-Dame-de-Grâce. From 1976, she presented her works in British Columbia and Quebec. Then, she returned to school and completed a Certificate in sculpture (1983), a Major in sculpture (1990) and a Bachelor's degree in art history (2005). In 1989, she participated in the drafting of the Code of Ethics for Sculptors with Ninon Gauthier (art critic and sociologist) and Luc LaRochelle (lawyer and collector). In the early 1990s, she began working as a career management consultant and trainer for artists of all disciplines. In 1999, she returned to sculpture. In 2004, his practice took a major turn and gave rise to collages in high and low relief mounted on cardboard, and almost always incorporating text, either calligraphy or printing.
