Biography of Artist Patricia Palermino

American Folk Artist Patricia PalerminoMy name is Patricia Palermino and I’m an American Folk Art Artist. I’m a self taught folk artist who has been painting since I can remember. I’ve been publishing my unique collection of folk art paintings as prints and note cards for 20 years and have been showing my paintings in many galleries around the world. I live in Alexandria, Virginia with my family, where I create my paintings in my home studio because this is where I feel most inspired to paint. Many of my paintings have depicted the quaint villages, festivals, fairs and parades so common in the Alexandria area and nearby Washington, D.C. My paintings are primitive folk art prints and historical folk art prints that portray a true experience of those places. Painting has been my passion since I was a little girl and will always be a part of my life.

My love for America is inspiring and patriotic to me. I started painting scenes of America in 1979, capturing its cities, countryside, seacoasts, farmlands, and forests. I use vibrant colors and a cast of playful characters to create an array of magical scenes that combine a whimsical spirit with a hint of nostalgia. My cheerful and detailed paintings capture viewers of all ages evoking smiles and pleasant memories to last forever! When I paint, my prints allow you to live in the scene and be able smell, taste and hear what you see. Like most contemporary folk artists, I focus on happy and historical events and holidays that result in my joyous paintings. American cities are fascinating to me and I make frequent visits to places like New York City and capture what I experience in my paintings.

My artwork can be seen and purchased on my online gallery, my Alexandria gallery and numerous other galleries across the US. My paintings are seen in very historical places including the White House, the National Archives, Winterthur Museum, the American Museum in Bath, England, the National Horticultural Society and others. My artwork has appeared on many posters and publications including the program cover of the National Easter Egg Roll at the White House, the UNICEF Corporate Christmas Card Collection, Historic Alexandria, Gadsby's Tavern Museum, Gunston Hall Museum, Woodlawn Plantation Museum, Winterthur Museum's Point to Point Races, United Card of Japan and others. Original paintings are sold at the Frank J. Miele Gallery in New York City.

My love for America is shown through my folk art. My folk art paintings, limited edition American folk art prints and note cards proudly reflect the character and charisma found in many of the United States’ most popular cities and landmarks. These happy and detailed images engage viewers of all ages, evoking smiles and pleasant memories. “Celebration”, “joy”, “whimsy” and “humor” are words that I have heard from viewers and I am delighted at this reaction. One eleven-year-old boy exclaimed, “this folk art rocks!” at a recent exhibit. As an American folk artist painting in a contemporary folk art style, I am excited to be able to offer my collection of Americana paintings, prints and folk art note cards. My works are sold in numerous galleries and are in many public and private collections including The White House, the American Museum in Bath, England, the National Horticultural Society, United Card in Tokyo, Japan and others around the world.
