The Women in his Life

Philemona Williamson, artist

“Behind every great man is a great woman. Who are the women who have influenced President Obama; the grandmother and mother who fostered his compassion, curiosity and work ethic? The wife and sister who support his diversity and embrace his optimism? The daughters, who represent his hope and passion for the future?”


Philemona Williamson creates narrative paintings for The Sheldon Museum of Art, Hampton University Museum, Reader’s Digest Art Collection and AT&T.


Ms. Williamson has been awarded a Joan Mitchell Foundation Grant, a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship in Painting, a Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant and New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowship.
