Nancy Boyd

Price range: $500-$5000

Nancy was born in Hamilton in 1949 and studied art at Ontario College of Art as well as at the University of Waterloo before moving to Vancouver. For years she worked as a designer and architectural renderer, most notably for Expo 86. Nancy taught design, drawing and painting at Capilano University for 23 years before she retired in 2010. Her work retains the influences of her design and architectural rendering background as evident in her fascination with ‘views’ and the conflation of scale between the microscopic and the cosmic. All her work, either representational or abstract, is infused with an ongoing sense of wonder and attention to the beautiful.

Nancy has shown extensively in the Lower Mainland and western Canada as well as internationally in the US, Japan and Australia. Her work can be seen at the Vancouver Art Gallery and Burnaby Art Gallery Rental Programs and at Wallace Galleries in Calgary.

Nancy Boyd, a Vancouver artist and educator, has worked in various capacities in the local art scene for many years. Once a designer and illustrator for Expo ‘86, she now teaches drawing and painting part-time at Capilano College in North Vancouver when she is not in her studio. Her mixed media work is increasingly abstract, highly tactile and frequently infused with figurative or metaphoric allusions. She has shown extensively around the lower mainland in the public galleries of Richmond, Surrey, Burnaby and Coquitlam. In addition, her work has been exhibited in Washington State, Japan and locally at Equinox and Diane Farris galleries. In Vancouver, her work is handled exclusively by Elliot Louis Gallery. In Victoria, her work is shown by Fran Willis Gallery and in Calgary by Wallace Galleries.
