At 40, Patrick left his job in media and decided to pursue his passion in art. He enrolled at Heatherley's School of Art (Chelsea) and later at The National College of Art and Design (Dublin).
Describing his work Patrick commented,
“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.”View the full article on Patrick Palmer subscribe today to our magazine and receive 25% discount including access to all past issues.
