For as long as she can remember, Ginny Palmer has had a deep passion for creating all genres of art. Inspired by her timeless adventures as a child growing up on the beautiful countryside of Melbourne, Australia, is when she first exhibited her artistic skills as a young child at age four. Her mother, Vibeke Petersson, who was an accomplished artist, soon recognized her daughter’s natural ability and eagerly encouraged her to develop her talents.
It wasn’t until 1978 when she and her family moved to South Florida before Ginny truly developed her artistic skills by using a broad range of mediums such as, vibrant glossy acrylics and watercolors; to rich pigments of black Indian ink. Her unique works have extended from painting characterful illustrations for educational exhibits; to intriguing and skillful presentations of black and white Architectural themes, and expressive portraitures of colorful Pop Art.
In the early 90s Ginny and her mother began producing a multitude of various commissions for private art collectors throughout the United States and Canada. While Vibeke Petersson was known for composing exquisite reproductions of old world, 20th century European artists, particularly those of the French School of Art who painted in the “Fauve” feeling, Ginny Palmer, known as “R E M L A P,” painted in the “likeness” of many American and European artist at the time such as; Tarkay, Maimon, Manet, Alex Katz, amongst others. Their colorful portraitures evoked a lasting impression which led her to develop her own style and originality.
