Thomas Boone has always had an artistic calling. Born in Michigan in 1945, He earned a BFA in Industrial Design from the Center for Creative Studies in Detroit. During that time he worked at a local art gallery which got his mind thinking about the possibilities of opening his own one day. After graduation he started putting that vision into action. He along with his then wife Linda Boone and bringing on her brother Ferdinand Hampson as a third partner founded Habatat Galleries in 1971. In 1982 Thomas and Linda Boone decided to open Habatat’s second location relocating to Miami, Florida. Then in late 1980’s Thomas conceptualized the Gallery Center in Boca Raton where Habatat Galleries spent over 20 years. It was during this time that Mr. Boone decided to pursue his love for painting and also leave Habatat Galleries to open up a new gallery in the same Gallery Center complex called Indigo. He eventually closed Indigo to paint full time.
