Barbara Palmer


Mixed Media Artist

Acrylics, watercolour paint, pastel, charcoal, modelling paste, collaged photographs and found objects are just some of Barbara’s artistic tools.

Her work is inspired by her love of land and sea and the footprints of human activity found where the two meet. Her paintings are sometimes documentary and sometimes capture shape, colour and layering of textures to express the essence of her experience.

Barbara studied at the South Australian School of Art and has taught art and design in numerous schools.

Over the years Barbara has participated and curated in many exhibitions and joined the Collective in 2014.



There’s so much to look at, we suggest you come and browse. If you just can’t choose between the 2 or 3 (or more) items you simply have to have, why not take a moment to sit down and relax, and have lunch or coffee at one of the cafes just next to our gallery. And when you come back in, you’ll know exactly which work of art is right for you.

Come and find us in Gay's Arcade, inside Adelaide Arcade in Rundle Mall, Adeaide. We’d love to see you.
