Jamie Boyd and his wife Helena

Jamie Boyd, was born in Murrumbeena, Victoria, Australia on 19 November 1948, only son of artist Arthur Merric Bloomfield Boyd {q.v.] and his wife Yvonne Hartland, daughter of John Aim Lennie and Edna Latham Hartland, who married on 6 March 1945. An International painter and sculptor of a great inheritance, Jamie Boyd began painting en plein air at early age with family renowned artists. Jamie studied Art and Music at London's School of Fine Art at Academy of Art and Design, graduating in 1960 and in 1965 won the Foundation Michael Karolyi, Vence Painting Award. Jamie Boyd often works in his former family home Bundanon in New South Wales, now an art centre and retreat which the family bequeathed to the nation following the death of Arthur Boyd in 1999. His patient, painstaking, unshowy, exhilarating visions, whether of Narcissus and Echo, of Suffolk landscapes or of Australian landscapes, worked on and completed in Suffolk. Jamie Boyd, international in his stature, with roots in Australia, Italy and London as well as at Ramsholt, Suffolk. Probably every landscape he does, whether the originating impulse comes from an Australian river, an observation in Tuscany or something mythological, is touched by the light and atmospherics of the River Deben in Suffolk. He holds regular exhibitions internationally and in Australia and locally at the Chappel Galleries and North House Gallery, Essex. Over the past six decades Jamie Boyd has produced a prolific body of work represented in public collections around the world.
