About

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.  Creating fine art in a variety of subjects, I especially love to create music themed canvases.  Expressing on the canvas the special way an instrument sings for you and the connection of the instrument to its musician. The melody and harmony, feeling the groove, chasing the tone, and rising 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.

Using my 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.  Find  instruments and musicians subtly hidden in the impressionistic pattern repeats!
