A Teacher’s Work Is Never Done

Oct 13, 2020 | Featured Artist, Art, Oklahoma Artist

With over 3,500 murals throughout Oklahoma, Canada, Mexico, and Europe and 40 years of teaching at UCO, Dr. Bob Palmer is a fixture of Oklahoma’s artistic landscape. After retiring from UCO in 2014, he chose to continue his career with Palmer Studios, Inc., creating murals and unique paintings. We are thrilled to showcase his work at our OKC web design studio through the end of the year, particularly because he taught Amy in college.

Why Art?

Dr. Palmer explains that he always wanted to be an artist, specifically someone “who made a living as an artist.” He managed to meet this goal, “even to the point where that income is surpassing full professorship.” Dr. Palmer encourages other people to follow their own dreams of creating art as a full-time job.

What Inspires?

Dr. Palmer works in various styles and mediums to create his stunning, inspirational pieces. He explains, “Some of my inspiration comes from nature.” You can easily see this inspiration in many of his paintings throughout our studio.

Dr. Palmer, however, does not limit himself to nature. He also explains that inspiration “comes from non-inspirational things like what I already have in the way of materials. Some of it comes from the challenges I give myself.” After decades of work, it seems that Dr. Palmer will not be running out of ideas anytime soon. After years of painting and teaching, Dr. Palmer is still going strong. He explains, “The fun for me (in this collection) was in the creation, not the finished pieces.”
