Lisa, an award winning artist, was born in Shanghai and lived in China for several years. Her father, Kirby Boyd, was born in Melbourne and is related to the Australian family of Boyd artists. Kirby was taken to China by his enterprising mother who owned a curio store in Shanghai. He met and married Anita Tayler in Shanghai where she was also born.
Looking for new horizons, the family left the Orient and moved to Canada. Montreal became their base and where she completed her school years.
After college in Lausanne, and Sir George William's University in Montreal, Lisa resided in London and spent fifteen years travelling throughout Europe for Thomas Cook & Son. In South Florida, Lisa studied art at Nova University in South Florida.
She speaks Italian, French and Spanish.
Lisa finally settled in South Florida and is passionate about the architecture, colours, music and most of all the people. As an artist, she became enchanted with the area’s depth of soul and love of life which reach out to everyone. Coming from a family of artists,
it was natural for her to put hand to brush and paint. Lisa has become an award winning artist and exhibited extensively in South Florida.
