SHANNON PALMER

I'm a painter, photographer, and printmaker born in 1974.

I've always been inspired by the imagined narratives of seemingly mundane moments, objects, and architecture. I like to imagine the stories these things hold, ever curious about the experiences they've been witness to. When I'm painting, my preferred medium is usually oil, though I've been known to dabble with gouache and acrylic. A long-time graphic designer, I'm quite smitten with the study of typography, and 1950s/1960s era Swiss design, as well as Mid-Century Modern architecture.

When I have the free time, I like to push buttons on vintage drum machines and reel to reel recorders, make soap and men's grooming products, and watch re-runs of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
