Mariah Boyle creates life-sized mixed media drawings and installations that reference the landscape and personal or public memories associated with passing through or spending time in a place. Life in the Northwest has had a strong influence on her work. This past summer, she spent time as an artist in residence at the Sitka Center for Art & Ecology in Otis, Oregon and the Centrum Foundation in Port Townsend, Washington.
Mariah received her BA from Eastern Oregon University and her MFA from Washington State University in 2012. She taught studio art at both of her alma maters before joining the faculty at Spokane Falls Community College, where she teaches drawing, color and design, and art appreciation. Mariah is a member of the regional artist collective, Saranac Art Projects, in Spokane, Washington.
