Nadia Myre is a multi-disciplinary visual artist from Montreal (Quebec), whose work is gaining critical acclaim.

Myre is the recipient of numerous grants and awards–notably the Quebec Arts Council: Prix la création artistique pour la region des Laurentides (2009), and a Fellowship from the Eiteljorg Museum (2004).
