Welcome to palmer K designs!

I founded palmer K designs to share my art beyond the canvas!  

Being a self taught artist and busy stay at home mom for 20 years, I enjoyed creating art for our home and with my children as a together time activity.  As my children started their own journeys and adventures, I launched palmer K designs to turn my creativity into "Art to Be lived in"™.

Inspiration for palmer K designs was a gradual discovery, with a vision continually evolving.  Known for my abstract impressionistic guitar paintings, I love to express on the canvas the special way any instrument sings for you.  The melody and harmony, feeling the groove, chasing the tone, and raising yourself to the next level.   

Drawing on my experience and free spirit, I go where the canvas takes me, using whatever tools and mediums I'm inspired to use.  When I paint, my goal is to create and title a piece that is both pleasing to the eye, evokes an emotion of familiarity and enjoyment, while also drawing the viewer in for a second look to make a personal connection with my art. 

The palmer K designs product line is based on original works of art, making them unique to add that individual touch to your home, wardrobe, and lifestyle.  Using my original fine art to create unique pattern repeat designs, I launched a new line of music inspired fabric and home decor at the October 2022 High Point Market.  See the guitars, drums, and musicians subtly hidden in the pattern repeats!   New Instrumental patterns releasing summer 2023.
