About Patrick Palmer
I am a professional artist exhibiting at a number of galleries across the UK including Belgravia Gallery in Mayfair, Box Galleries on the King's Road and Morningside Gallery in Edinburgh. I am also the life-drawing tutor at The Fire-Station Arts Centre in Windsor. I studied at Heatherley's School of Art in London and at The National College of Art and Design, Dublin. I have also been lucky enough to have been given extensive personal tuition by a close friend of Francis Bacon and an honorary fellow of The Royal College of Art. Whilst an element of realism is important, I try to move beyond artistic convention and avoid an image that is too predictable. Realism is not enough - what you take away and what you add to what you see are what transform a picture into art. I believe that the viewer wants to see a degree of draughtsmanship from an artist but they deserve more than this. I aspire to make my pictures touch people personally and to be considered works of beauty.
