— Biography of Lynne Boyd
Lynne Boyd has lived and worked in Melbourne her entire life. She completed studies at the Victorian College of the Arts in 1984, and completed a Master of Fine Arts at Monash University in 2004. She has lectured at the VCA, RMIT, Monash and La Trobe Universities.
She began exhibiting her paintings and drawings of Port Philip Bay in the mid 1980s in Melbourne, and variations of this subject have been the core of her practice ever since. Her views of the bay vary in their degree of abstraction: sometimes a horizon line shows where the sky meets the sea, but at other times, gradual shifts in colour create an ambiguous suggestion of cloud, or sand, or simply atmosphere.
Represented in state, regional and university collections throughout the country, Boyd was a finalist in the 2015 Arthur Guy Memorial Prize.
