This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Kate Parker Scott Boyd was born 23 October 1836 in New York the daughter of Andrew Scott of Flushing, New York. Her father was a fine amateur artist born in Paisley, Scotland. Andrew's portfolio was of watercolors. She attended the Flushing Female College under the charge of Rev. William Gilder.

Kate Scott married Rev. N.E. Boyd in 1862. They lived in Portland, ME and Canastota, NY having two sons both of whom died at an early age. Kate Boyd derived income from the art exhibited and sold at the Academies of Design in New York and Brooklyn.

Boyd won medals and awards at the Philadelphia 1876 Centennial Exposition. She competed in state and county exhibitions while living in New York. She wrote and illustrated for "American Garden" and other periodicals using the initials K.P.S.B.

Rev and Kate Boyd moved to San Francisco, California in 1877, and her work in California was well, received bringing her acknowledgement and success. In 1879 she exhibited landscapes of the San Francisco Bay area at the San Francisco Art Association Exhibition. At the Oakland Industrial Exposition in 1896 she exhibited landscapes with wildflowers and more landscapes of the bay area.

Unfortunately, most of her art was destroyed in the 1906 San Francisco earthquake and fire. After the earthquake she moved to Berkeley, California. She remained active in the local California art community, but her art is a rare find in the 21st Century.

Boyd's other interests were the Woman's Christian Temperance Union, Sailors' Lend-A-Hand Club, Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, Association for Advancement of Women and the Pacific Coast Women's Press Association.

Kate Parker Scott Boyd died 22 January 1922 in California.
