Born in Texas, Judy Boyd has lived throughout the Western US and in Mexico and Ecuador.
She became passionate about birds after a week-long birding class in Southeastern Arizona.
It inspired her to earn a Certificate in Field Ornithology,
to start an Audubon Christmas Bird Count in Central Mexico,
and to become a painter of watercolor bird portraits.
Judy has traveled to Mexico, Belize, Panama and Ecuador to see, photograph and paint her avian friends. Her bird portraits have been selected for regional and national juried exhibitions in Arizona, California, Colorado, New Mexico, Texas and Mexico. She had the honor of being selected as an Artist in Residence at the Audubon Camp on Hog Island, Maine in August 2017.
