Biography:

Born in l939 in Manchester, England, Maureen Booth started to paint in oils and watercolors when she was l9 years old. At this time she did a few portraits under the direccion of Peter Shaw. In l964 she came to live on the coast of Southern Spain, where she had her first studio and started selling her work. In l969 she moved inland to a village near Granada where, with her husband, she renovated a farmhouse which included a bigger painting studio and, eventually a printmaking workshop.

Granada is a town with many cultural possibilities. In l977 she was selected to work in the etching workshop of the Fundación Rodriguez Acosta, and was there two and a half years under the direction of the "maestro" José Lómas. In l984 she was granted Spanish citizenship. She has participated in Madrid’s Internacional Graphics Fair, "ESTAMPA," since its first edition, five years ago. Maureen works with several galleries, both in Granada and further afield.

In l984 she created the pilot project for a province-wide series of painting workshops for young people, and ran one of these workshops for 3 years in her own village. In l997 she was invited to The Nacional Museum, Belgrade to the Open Workshop to show etching techniques, where she was also invited to participate in the Biennal of contempory graphics in Belgrade 1998
