Booker received a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology from Rutgers University in 1976. She then received her Master of Fine Arts from the City College of New York (CUNY) in 1993. Now in her sixties, Booker has studied a variety of different subjects including African dance, ceramics, weaving, basketry as well as t’ai chi which all contribute to her interesting artistic practices. Booker always felt the need to utilize these skills differently as a means of experimentation and play. These skills were all translated into a tool for creating her elaborate sculptures.
