My Story

Mary Palmer has been exploring textile art through quilt making for 30 years. She trained in automotive design which has thus influenced her work with structure, pattern, and precision being important elements in her projects. Although traditional forms and patterns influence her work, she brings a contemporary feel through colour and texture, drawing the viewer in. She likes to play with words and concepts and is frequently inspired by architectural shapes as well as magical mathematical structures found in nature and music. Mary has won numerous awards worldwide and has work in private and public collections in Ireland and abroad.
