Kay Boyce was born in Sheffield and studied illustration at College for four years. She worked as a Freelance Illustrator for seven years producing editorial work for Woman’s Weekly, Bella, My Weekly, Sunday Express, Woman’s Own and Fiesta magazine.
Kay's career as an artist has flourished; her magnificent oils, pastel and pencil drawings have become instantly recognisable. Her work has graced private collections for many years and she is now firmly established as a leading figurative artist. Her delicate use of oils and pastels and love of antique clothes and fabrics lend a soft feminine quality to her work which appeals to men and women alike. Kay has trained in Ballet and contemporary dance (and now Salsa) and it is this that has given her an insight into her subject and an aptitude for reproducing it.
The illustration work of Kay Boyce has carried her through to major book publishers such as Hodder & Staughton, Wordsworth Romantic, Mills and Boon, and Mandarin. During this seven-year period she has been producing Fine Art Paintings and Drawings that have been sold at various Galleries and Exhibitions around the United Kingdom which include: the AOI Gallery, London, Barbican Centre, London, and the Science and Industry Museum, Manchester. Fine Art Printers, Solomon and Whitehead, have published her work as limited edition prints which have been distributed widely throughout the U.K.
Kay Boyce has recently completed a project for RADA’s new brochure through one of the top agents in London which included 23 Portraits of famous actors and actresses including Sir Anthony Hopkins, John Thaw, Alan Bates, Sir John Guilgood, Diana Rigg and Dame Flora Robson to name a few. The finished Artwork was assessed and approved by Sir Richard Attenborough himself.
