Artist Lecture - Io Palmer
She was born on the Grecian island Hydra to two artistic parents. Her mother was a boutique maker and her father did sculpture and drawings. She tells us that her father is the reason for her love for art, and says that he is the real inspiration for her career.
She went to Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia for her BFA and got her MFA at the University of Arizona. She is currently a ceramics teacher at Washington State University.
Palmer's work consisted of synthetic hair, because she felt like it was interesting to her and had some kind of meaning and symbolism. Some other interesting pieces she mentioned was her juxtaposing pieces by combining two different images. In all her work was some what interesting and the presentation was nice and simple and informative.
