About Filomena Booth:
Filomena was born in Portugal and migrated to the United States with her parents as a young child. Raised in northeast New Jersey, she developed a love of art at a young age. Her preference for coloring outside the lines in her coloring books might have been an early sign of her eventual career as an abstract artist.
After several years as a high school art teacher, Filomena devoted herself to raising her family. The desire to get back into her art burned strongly within her and led her to start her own custom art business. Her work is found in many prestigious homes and corporate offices throughout Florida. In 2003, she was awarded the American Artist Magazine award for her painting, “Shaman”, and the Lascaux/Savoire Fair award for “Earth in the Balance”.
In 2007 she participated in the “Southlake Stampede”, a public art project featuring longhorn statues that were painted and stationed throughout the city of Southlake. She has also served as juror for Art in the Square, the annual art festival in Southlake, Texas. Her original abstract paintings are currently represented by The Muse Fine Art Gallery in Denver, CO and First Avenue Contemporary Gallery in Ketchum, ID.
Filomena lives in rural central Texas where she continues to paint her bold abstracts. She loves to experiment with materials, texture and color. Her experience as an art teacher has given her the ability to be “fluent” in various styles and techniques. Although she normally doesn’t have a preconceived idea in mind as she begins each painting, she guides and coaxes the composition and colors until the piece quietly “speaks” to her that it is finished.
