Philip M BOOTH

Booth works from Hawkwood, Lamorna, Penzance TR19 6NY. For a number of years he taught on the art faculty of the Falmouth College of Art.

The artist remains listed as a member of NSA, though he has been working in Japan for the past decade, as he was in 1995 (Hardie, p196). Currently (2011) he serves as Chairman of the NSA and is living in Cornwall.

With colleague Denny LONG, Phil has co-curated an NSA Exhibition, Uncharted Landscapes at the Mariners' Chapel, St Ives, that includes the work of 40 members of the Newlyn Society of Artists, hosted by STISA.
