Marie Boyd is a writer, illustrator, artist, educator, and scholar. She creates quilled illustrations and art. She collects colorful paper and then cuts it into narrow strips, which she uses to create modern, bold, colorful images that literally come off of the page. She was one of four artists selected to participate in the Columbia Metropolitan Airport's 2022-2023 Art in the Airport Program. She loves spending time outdoors and draws inspiration from the natural world.
She has a degree in Chemistry from Harvard and a law degree from Yale. She is a law professor. Her scholarship focuses on products regulated by the Food and Drug Administration. She is particularly interested in the regulation of food and cosmetics.
Originally from Salt Lake City, she lives in Columbia, South Carolina with her husband and two young children. She is a member of SCBWI.
