Myriam Van Neste is an artist and illustrator from Quebec, Canada. She was trained as a sculptor in Montreal, then in Helsinki, Finland, where she obtained a Masters degree in Environmental Art. About five years ago, her practice shifted toward illustration and her new body of work now includes illustrations and surface pattern designs.
She first started making paper collages and illustration as a creative outlet - most of her work starts off this way. Her designs are very much inspired about all the things she love about Finland and Scandinavia: the natural environment, the colours, the unique Finnish design.
