Born in Texas, Judy has lived and traveled internationally to see, photograph and paint her avian friends. Incorporating a dry brush technique, her work is characterized by fine brushwork, meticulous detail, and fanciful backgrounds. Her unique borders tell stories about the birds’ habitats. She hopes her art will remind people of the birds they love and the necessity of international cooperation in protecting the health of the planet that we all share. 

 Judy is the 2018-2019 president of the Santa Fe Society of Artists and a signature member of the New Mexico Watercolor Society. Her work has been selected for juried exhibitions in Arizona, California, Colorado, Mexico and New Mexico. She had the honor of being selected as an Artist in Residence at the Audubon Camp on Hog Island, Maine in 2017. Her work can be seen online at Birds-by-Boyd.com and on Facebook at Judy Boyd Watercolors. She currently lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico with her husband and rescue dogs.
