www.deborahpalmerfineart.comAn émigré to the Charleston area from Pelham, NY in 2000, Deborah Palmer is a Long Islander, born and bred. She currently divides her year between Mt. Pleasant, SC and Sag Harbor, NY and devotes full time to her oil painting.
She studied drawing and painting at Skidmore College where she earned her undergraduate degree in Fine Arts. Upon graduation, she spent the next twenty years as an Art Director in several New York advertising agencies using her drawing and compositional skills primarily in layout work for print campaigns and TV commercials. During this period she had many of her illustrations published. In 1992, she established her own graphic design studio catering to clients in the craft industry.
Enchanted by the light, marshlands and wildlife in the lowcountry, Debbie returned to her art to pursue landscapes. She continues to study with prominent artists in Charleston and Long Island to refine her skills and define her personal style. She is an exhibiting member of the Charleston and Mt. Pleasant Artist Guilds as well as the AAEH, and she has won awards in the annual juried Signature Show in Charleston. Her art is in numerous private and institutional collections across the US and Canada.
Her work has been exhibited at Skidmore’s Galleries, at Guild Hall, the Art Center in Pelham, the Sandpiper Gallery on Sullivan’s Island, SC, The North Charleston City Gallery, L’Orangerie Gallery in Greenport, NY and is currently represented by the Spencer Art Gallery in Charleston, SC.
