Jitka Palmer was born in Prague. She studied medicine and worked as an anatomist. In 1985 Palmer moved to Britain and studied ceramics at Croydon College of Art and Design. She set up her studio in London with the help of the Crafts Council Setting Up Grant. She now lives and works in Bristol.
Her work is figurative, narrative and expressive, inspired by stories and themes. She loves to watch people, their body language and facial expressions, she is always looking out for special moments and situations accompanying every human activity. She uses her sketchbooks, books and CDs as valuable collection of raw material.
Drawing and painting on clay surface is a pivot of her work. Jitka particularly likes capturing the movement and energy of people in various activities like work, sport and music.
She also loves the challenge of quick intuitive drawing without unnecessary detail. The effect of the graffiti, which can be exercised so liberally in ceramics, gives immense, almost physical pleasure. It serves as a visual storage of energy.
She draws on personal experiences, past and present, with a view to reflect the spontaneity of ordinary human life.
