Palmer is trained as a painter but her work explores the intersections of painting, history and color, allowing it to blur the lines of painting, sculpture and installation. Her work investigates colonial American history as it relates to her own identity as black woman. Her paintings respond gesturally and the fabric works rely on materials to navigate conceptual ideas. While Palmer’s studio work is generated from personal histories, her public art is a reclamation of space. She has worked with various communities to create public art projects ranging from traditional murals to community engaged/lead murals to digitally created murals. Palmer has worked with MIT, Lifewtr, Saxby’s and Mural Arts Philadelphia. Her murals can be found at the Dorchester, Ma, Cambridge, Massachusetts, Philadelphia, PA and Omaha Ne.
