Living and working in Florida, with a studio overlooking the wilderness of Paynes Prairie, Patrice Boyes is an artist surrounded by strong influences of the natural world. Boyes has had solo exhibitions of her work in private, civic and college galleries and numerous group exhibitions within the United States. She is a signature member of the National Association of Women Artists (NAWA). Her non-figurative work is dominated by a connection to Florida's fragile ecology and to the fragility of the cultural environment she has observed in Cuba, Japan, and Western Europe, speaking to humanity's quest to understand what it cannot perceive.
