Artist: Esther Boyd

Esther Boyd, a native of Oakley, Kansas, is a Kansas City-based painter and illustrator. Boyd uses simple, strong brushwork to build compositions of overlapping colors. Her work also depicts inanimate objects in pastel colors and with transparent effects.

Boyd’s influences include artists such as John Singer Sargent and Claude Monet, as well as Asian culture, surface design and textiles. In August, Boyd was one of three artists to earn an honorable mention for her work “Sunlight Peaches” at the National Small Oil Painting Exhibition at Mark Arts (formerly the Wichita Center for the Arts) in Wichita, Kansas.

Now self-employed, previously she worked as a marketing creative director at the New Theatre Restaurant, and, for nearly a decade, at Hallmark Cards as a designer, technician, and production artist. Boyd earned bachelor’s degrees in textile design and architecture from the University of Kansas in Lawrence, Kansas, and in fine and studio arts at Bethany College in Lindsborg. She also holds a master’s in architecture, with a focus on built form and culture, from KU.
