Master plein air artist Dee Boyles grew up on the north Umpqua River and was constantly rambling through the Northwest’s forests where he developed a deep love of the land. This can be easily seen in his oils where painting landscapes is a full-time passion! “I love being surrounded by the experience of natural forces: the light and shadow, the silence and the racket, the stillness and the perpetual activity of the earthy essence and sublime spiritualness”.
An Artistic Background
Dee has an extensive background in the arts working as graphic illustrator when ones skill lay in the paintbrush, teaching at the University of Alaska, working closely with the California Impressionists and finally moving to Oregon where he has extended his skills to wood block prints and the ancient process of Moku Hanga prints.
