Bio

Maria Boyd is a contemporary watercolour artist who works from a small home studio in Leicester.

As a self-taught watercolourist partnered with a background in design, she creates paintings that give us an insight into her vision of the surrounding world.

Nothing gives her greater pleasure than coming home from a walk clutching a leaf, a twig or a desiccated weed or seed head that has sparked her interest. She translates and reimagines the surrounding Flora and Fauna into a highly decorative forms using the patterns and geometry contained in nature.

Pattern plays a huge part in Maria’s work and she enjoys juxtaposing natural forms onto pattern backgrounds which often come from different cultures and religions, these are then bound together with a limited colour palette.
