Patrick is an established artist specialising in the female form – subtle, classical nudes in oil and red chalk. He left a successful career in media at the age of 40 to pursue his childhood ambition. After attending life-drawing classes for 15 years and studying at Heatherleys (London) and NCAD (Dublin) he now exhibits at a number of galleries in the UK and he teaches at The Old Court in Windsor. His work is featured in ‘Images of Women in Art’ and on the cover of ‘Musings of Miss Yellow’ (both available on Amazon).

Prettiest Girl in Town


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 simple works of beauty.

“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.”
