About
Myriam Wares is a French-Canadian illustrator from Montreal. Her work touches on a variety of themes, notably natural sciences and technology, mythology and surrealism, as well as contemporary social issues. With a rich but subtle layering of textures and the dramatic use of lighting, she creates warm, surrealistic scenes that draw viewers into a world of wonder.

After a short period of in-house work, she decided to launch her freelance business and now works from her office in Montreal's Old Port area. She has worked with clients from around the world, on projects ranging from packaging design to editorial illustration, publishing and advertising. Her work has been recognized and awarded by organizations such as Communication Arts, World Illustration Awards and 3x3 Magazine
