Myriam Wares is a French-Canadian illustrator from Montreal. A Dawson College alumnus, she graduated with honours from the Illustration & Design program before landing her first job as an in-house illustrator for local clothing brand Poches & Fils.
Having made the leap to freelance work in 2019, she has since worked with several publications, such as The Atlantic and The Walrus. Among her other commercial projects one can find anything from packaging design to book illustration. Most recently, Myriam's piece The Messenger has been recognized by Applied Arts and 3x3 Magazine. Fluent in both French and English, she works with local companies in Quebec, as well as clients all over North America.
For her more dedicated audience and art directors who wish to keep a closer eye on her work, she has recently launched a Newsletter that offers exclusive sneak peeks and updates on her latest projects.
