She paints what inspires her whether it is a person, place or object - but nature remains her muse and colour her method of expression. She studied consistently under various artists to gain a broad experience but had no other formal training. She initially studied medicine in Chicago and then came to Perth where she formally trained as a physiotherapist specialising in rehabilitation of stroke, head and spinal injuries for 12 years.
Myriam returned to art and became an accomplished china painter with an eye for detail and composition and ran a business making one-off pieces including glass fusing. She has recently developed a new technique that allows her to move away from photorealism to more abstract work with the aim that the colour, composition and mood attract and connect the viewer at a deeper level - placing them in the environment of the painting as the unseen participant.
