Boyd Warren Chubbs was born in LıAnse Au Clair, Labrador on Bloomsday, 1955 to Una (nee Cribb) and Gordon Victor Chubbs. His poetry and music have been broadcast and featured on both regional and national CBC Radio and Television. He has received numerous private and public commissions for drawings and illuminations.
From 1987 to 1990 Boyd was Poet-in-Residence at the former Nova Scotia Teacherıs College in Truro. His previous books of poems include Lines from the Migrant Coast (Mokoshan, 1989), Through Solomonıs Lane (Mokoshan, 1991), Poems from the Burntwoods (Creative Publishing, 1995), And You, Blessed Healer (Breakwater Books, 1996) and The Birth and Burial Grounds (Breakwater Books, 1999). A play-in-progress, A Day Upon the Wooden Crow, was given two stage-readings by the RCA Theatre Company in St. Johnıs in 1998.
His guitar compositions include two recordings, Spanish in the Harbour (1991) and Across Waters and Stones (1998).
His three most recent art exhibitions at the Christina Parker Gallery in St. Johnıs, A Land and Sea is Beyond Claim or Discovery (1998), Gifts and Allegories (2000) and I Make A Covenant With My Eyes (2003), were purchased en suite and remain in the province, or, as Boyd Warren Chubbs has written, "my Holy Land."
Boyd lives in St. Johnıs and is currently working on a guitar recording, New, Borrowed and Selected; a series of drawings, Saint Jerome Translating the Book of Gadus Morhus and a book of sonnets, Feral Domicile.
"All work continues and all are one."
