Steve Palermo

Whether it is painting,drawing or mixed media,there is a balance to my work. I use color,composition and texture to infuse an emotional response. I am centered and so is my work. Color is placed so that the viewer’s eye journeys peacefully through the work. I believe that I am creating from emotional responses effected my past and present experiences..Whatever I have done in my life is reflected in the art that I create.


My work tends to connect with the present while holding on to past. I try to reinvent old ideas by using “new improved” techniques. I like to replace traditional materials with more manageable “modern day” products. I enjoy creating. I feel a sense of self. This is not an egotist’s scream but a gentle “yes. I created this.”
