Celia Perceval Biography  


Celia Perceval was born in Melbourne in 1949, a second daughter of Lady Mary Nolan (Boyd) and the late John Perceval (1923-2000). She is a landscape painter travelling and painting on location in Australia and Europe. Celia’s work is in many private and public collections in Australia and around the world.

Celia Perceval is a renowned Australian artist and a well regarded Australian artist. Her work is highly sought after by Australian and International collectors.

Celia belongs to the distinguished Boyd artistic dynasty that began in 1886 with the marriage of Emma Minnie à Beckett (1858-1936) and Arthur Merric Boyd (1862-1940). Celia is a second daughter of John Perceval  (1923-2000) and Arthur Boyd's sister Mary, Lady Nolan.

Celia Perceval is a self-taught painter, first exhibited at the age of sixteen. She developed her inspiration for drawing and painting in the artistic environment created by her parents John Perceval (1923-2000) and Mary Boyd. Celia has been continuously painting since her early age and holding first exhibition in 1966 when she was just 16.

Celia is a famous artist in her own right and well-known for her heavily textured and expressive paintings of the Australian bush often focusing on the coastal bush-land.

Celia travelers extensively to paint the Australian bush, often setting up camp in remote areas such as The Stirling Ranges in WA, the Flinders Ranges in SAa and the Gulf and Cape areas of Queensland. She believes that painting 'on the spot' enhances the effect of the painting - capturing the light and atmosphere of the landscape.

Celia Perceval paintings are sold in some of the finest art galleries as well as major auction houses: Dutscher Menzies sold $97,005, Bonhams & Goodman $24,874, Joel Fine Art $24,316, Lawson Menzies $22,212, Christies $10,584. Celia’s work is represented in many private and public collections in Australia and around the world.
