Paris Boyd, who now resides in Duxbury, Ma. was born and raised in New York City. Starting at the age of ten, Paris began to study the ancient art of Chinese painting, under the private instruction of award-winning Miss Peiling Liang from 1964 to 1972. Paris paints in the traditional Chinese mode, using ink and watercolor on rice paper or silk, framed or scrolled - specializing in the Southern Sung Dynasty.
After many years and much success with this artistic genre, Paris has more recently expanded to a new medium, specifically- oil on canvas.
Paris has studied under the tutorship of Miss Doro Simone, of Plymouth, Ma. since 2002, who, in her own right is noted for her artistic accomplishments throughout renowned institutions of art in New England. With this professional relationship Paris has enjoyed even greater artistic ability and commercial success.
Finally, Paris' advancement with her renewed, broader momentum emphasizes primarily the natural beauty of the New England area in realistic/impressionistic style.
Specifically, over the past forty years she has continued to be devoted to landscapes, seascapes, coastlines and the islands, with a vivid color palette her signature.
"Chinese brush work is my first love, which taught me much discipline and appreciation of nature with all its inner reality, detailed form, position and spirit. Currently, working with oils I am delighted to find a new freedom in painting. Fortunately on a personal and professional basis finding the central aspect of my work and life resolves my ability to both translate and share the beauty of nature with you."
