Simon Palmer studied illustration and graphic design at Reigate School of Art during which he was encouraged by his tutors to pursue landscape painting. He worked for a while in Kent but returned to his birthplace of Yorkshire where he is now based near Masham. His enigmatic & captivating paintings pay homage to the people and landscape of Northern England. His paintings effectively marry present day reality with the equally interesting realm of his imagination transporting us into a world filled with intriguing characters and situations. It is this narrative quality coupled with his wit that has meant Simon’s work has attracted a large following from art collectors both at home and abroad.
“Palmer's work recalls the tonal qualities of William Morris in his muted earthy hues, and has a calm tendency towards surrealism reminiscent of Stanley Spencer as he presents his unfathomable situations”.
