Peta Boyce
Associate Member
Painter, Australia

A childhood spent in Papua New Guinea and a lifelong love of wildlife were the twin catalysts for Peta's commitment to her art. Peta's love of caring for some of the smaller species of birds is also reflected in her art. A self-taught artist, working mainly in gouache, her paintings of wrens, finches, robins and the smaller honeyeaters are extremely popular and her work is in private collections both in Australia and overseas.Passionate about Australian Native flora and fauna, Peta will take any opportunity to educate and inform others of the beauty in Australia and has spent many hours at the local school talking with the children. A keen gardener, she has planted most of the acreage that she lives on with Australian native plants. Many of the plants are endemic to the area in an attempt to "bring back the wildlife".
