Emma-Leone Palmer Portraits

Give me something gritty, something real. Show me!” is Emma-Leone Palmer‘s motto. Palmer is an Italian artist based in Umbria. Her main theme is portraits, however a portrait is not just a face as she describes.

I paint ‘faces’, although I like to say I paint ‘expressions’; not just what is on the aesthetic surface but the dialogue of what’s underneath. I am not interested in painting ‘bowls of fruit’ but living, breathing, expressive human beings“. Her work is in collections around the world. Enjoy.
