Born in Alberta, Canada, Neil Boyle (1931-2006) received formal art training in Alberta at the Banff School of Fine Arts, Canada, and the Chouinard Art Institute in Los Angeles in the 1950s before teaching art for several years at the California Art Institute in Thousand Oaks, California.

Over the next decade, Boyle provided story illustrations for several magazines, including The Saturday Evening Post, Reader's Digest, Cosmopolitan, and Ladies' Home Journal. 

Boyle also painted calendars for the Rand Corporation which included portraits of notable politicans, athletes, artists, and authors. In addition, the artist painted album covers for musicians such as Glenn Miller, Tennessee Ernie Ford, The Sons of the Pioneers, and Henry Mancini.

Later in life, Boyle painted many Western subjects in his typical impressionistic style, often signing his name alongside the acronym, BSWCA—Big Shot West Coast Artist, and returned to teaching at the California Art Institute. More on Neil Boyle
