Eleanor P. Boyden (she/her), a Canadian artist born in Alberta, where the wide open prairie skies ignited her artistic energy, has continued a visual arts practice for over 40 years. As she works across numerous mediums including paint, print, fibre, photography, and sculpture, Eleanor develops expressive meditative responses to the world and our humanity found within. Through the use of a diverse range of colours, abstracted patterns, and multiple layers of paint, Eleanor explores narratives of history, place, and our relationship with time.
Currently residing in Calgary, AB, Eleanor completed her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting with Distinction from AUArts (formerly ACAD) in 2017. The value of Eleanor’s research and contribution of her artwork has been recognised through multiple awards and residencies. By engaging in her artistic practice, Eleanor continues to seek, question, ponder, and explore the mystery of the world around her, in the hopes of sharing a bit of wonderment and joy with the viewer.
