Jamie Boyd was born in Melbourne in 1948. His family came to London in 1959 and he studied there briefly in the 1960’s at the Central School of Art and Design. As a painter, he continues the tradition of the Boyd family who have collectively made such a profound contribution to Australian art. It is however, equally significant that Jamie Boyd has established such a firm reputation as a painter in his own right.

He has lived most of his adult life in London, returning to Australia periodically where he is reunited with the surrounding landscape of the Shoalhaven with its’ almost intangibile beauty and strength. His distinctive work thus reflects both the enduring influence of the Australian landscape and a broad international sensibility.
