Palmer was born and raised in New York city and got her BFA from School of Visual Arts. Currently she lives and works in Los Angeles. She is a member of the Los Angeles Art Association and Women Painters West. Her paintings have been exhibited in New York and Los Angeles and is held in private collections in the U.S. as well as Europe. Recently her work was included in CLOSER NOW at The Torrance Art Museum and featured in Art and Cake’s “Extracting the Global and Offering the Intimate At TAM”by Genie Davis.
“Although Earl's style references the past, her goal is contemporary. She seeks to identify the way gender has been conceived and thereby undermine the social constructions of women as weaker and less significant than the male of the species. Her deconstructive agenda is subtle, without any overt negativity or critical references to "toxic masculinity." Instead, she looks to historic depictions of the female divine and empowers them with new honorific perspectives. “
