MiriamDraws is the
illustration, art + design
of Miriam Martincic
Miriam works from her studio in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina under careful dachshund supervision.
Drawing is how I chase my bliss and my blues. My art is filled with things I love—dogs, movement, intimacy—and things I struggle with—depression, vulnerability, and awkwardness. Drawing helps me process experience with clarity and humor.
Design and illustration appeal to me because they’re part of our everyday lives. I love seeing art in the wild on stamps, wine bottles, and editorial graphics. Murals are on my to-do list.
I used to swim competitively. I remember the regular repetition of training my body and mind. Drawing is the same kind of practice: of my skills, my vision, my emotional connection. It sustains me personally, and it helps me deliver confident, vibrant work to clients.
