She became accomplished at the piano and once exchanged piano lessons for art lessons, becoming enthralled and continued learning and then going beyond the basics to find her style through books, videos and workshops.
Over the past 20 years Loyd has won many awards both locally and nationally by creating works of passion in many subjects but she particularly enjoys painting portraits.
