About the artist

Nancy Boyle, (Wayland, Mass), is a traditionally trained artist who explores a variety of mediums to express her visual ideas.

She grew up in Boston with the influence of family artists who studied and taught art in Boston. Her animal characters are inspired by growing up in Boston, expressing sides of the city from the gritty to the elegant. and live in the fictional world of Nellenby.

Her landscape sketches and paintings are inspired by New England as well as her studies of Asian art history, time spent living in coastal Alaska, and travels to Europe and Israel. The landscapes seek to draw the viewer into an mood based on the landscape, and away from the troubles of the present.

The cubist influence comes from an interest in modern art including that of Braque and Picasso,
