MARILYN BOYLE

Biography

"EACH PAINTING IS A MOMENT IN TIME, CAUGHT BY MY MIND'S EYE, AND TRANSFERRED TO CANVAS."

Marilyn Alice Boyle was born and raised in Northwestern Ontario, the center of Canada, near the American border, where she grew up loving the rugged countryside, it's wildlilfe and all of the splendors that it has to offer. She and her husband settled in Thunder Bay and raised two children. After they entered high school she was able to turn her attention to painting. Self-taught, with some evening courses, Marilyn posseses a natural talent and a vivid imagination which her work clearly shows. Her love for fantasy and wildlife pointed her in the direction in which her art finally took her.

Lacking a formal studio, she paints in the dining room of her home; the one room in the house that has the best natural lighting. Marilyn is also a member of various clubs, guilds and organizations. She teaches acrylic painting, watercolors and crafts. Her work has been sold to homes all across Canada, the United States and overseas.

Creatures both fantastical and real are featured prominently in her paintings and often together. Few can blend the two as believably as this artist. She also paints on many untraditional canvases such as birch bark, stones and small paddles. Some of her work has been put into needlework and is now available all over the world. She now adds hand made cards to the growing list of variety in her art.

Marilyn and her husband travel often and take their traler to the many beautiful parks in the surrounding area. Many of her inspirations arise from the magnificient scenery that abounds in the Northwestern regions of Ontario.

The artist uses every spare moment of her free time to paint. Only this way does she feel that she can grow and improve. So far her horizons are limitless.
