Ingrid Boot was born in the UK and emigrated to New Zealand in 2000. She studied art at London’s Westminster University followed by a degree in Illustration from De Montfort University.
Her paintings predominantly portray the beauty of the female form. There is an essence of timeless elegance which is encapsulated within all of Ingrid's work. Her inspiration comes from a love of fashion history and movie icons of a bygone era.
As a final touch, there is a unique element in all her paintings. If you examine one of Ingrid’s paintings closely enough you will find the signature illustration that she includes. A tiny lizard is hidden somewhere - you will have to look hard to find it.
Ingrid Boot was awarded the supreme winner of the 2018 Peters Doig Art Award.
Timeless elegance is captured in Ingrid Boot's paintings that draw their inspiration from a bygone era.
