Deborah Boyd: January 11 - February 21, 2022
Pop-Up Window Exhibit @ 9 West Granada Blvd, Ormond Beach
"My award-winning art is brought to life through a kaleidoscope of color, inspired by the world around me. I’ve traveled extensively and find my muse worldwide. My creations are infused with the vibrant colors of the tropics and further influenced by artists like Monet, and Van Gogh. I began painting at 58 following a rewarding career in journalism and tourism management. I continue to be inspired and awed by everything I see."— DEBORAH BOYD

ABOUT the ARTIST
"I discovered I was an artist late in life. My mother was very talented, but never found the time to pick up a brush. I remember telling her that if I had her talent, I would never stop painting. Like most mothers, she always told me I had talent, I just needed to try. After her death - as if to defy her - I took an oil painting class. I came home and showed my husband the finished painting and said, "I think I can paint". I never looked back. At age 58, I discovered the artist in me. I have no formal training which has afforded me the freedom to experiment with a variety of techniques. I currently live in Daytona Beach Shores with my husband, author Marshall Boyd."
