Very flattered to be included in this list of the 10 best contemporary portrait artists!

Background

I was born in Henley and currently live with my 2 children in Windsor. I also lived in Dublin, London and Hong Kong. I was oriiginally in media but changed career at the age of 40 to follow my passion.

My work is on show at this year's Discerning Eye Competition and was featured in 2 books - 'Images of Women in Art' and 'Musings of Miss Yellow'.  I was delighted to be included in '10 of The Best Contemporary Portrait Artists' by One Fine Bid.

 

Statement

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 add to what you see are what transform a picture into art. I believe the viewer wants to see a degree of draughtsmanship from an artist but they deserve more than this. 

“Patrick Palmer is a modern master of figurative art. His post-romantic nudes are not only exquisitely painted, but also dreamy, delicate and suggestive. They only hint at sensuality and evoke fantasy in the subtle and elegant manner that distinguishes art from pornography.” Claudia Moscovici, Co-founder of postromanticism.com and art critic.
