Nancy Boyd teaches drawing and painting at Capilano College. Her work includes an open-ended exploration of evolving life forms and some of the sciences that probe them, including MRI scans, botanical/microscopic imagery and quantum physics. Her most recent series in encaustic and mixed media, Phylum, Genus and Morphology, reflects that an ongoing fascination with science and aesthetics. The introduction of somewhat volatile media, encaustic and heat-sensitive inks, amplifies the unpredictable, almost “alchemical” aspect of the new work. Boyd has shown extensively around Greater Vancouver in the public galleries of Richmond, Surrey, Burnaby and Coquitlam, and also abroad in the U.S., Japan and Australia. Her work can be seen at the Atelier Gallery (Vancouver), the Fran Willis Gallery (Victoria), and the Wallace Galleries (Calgary).
