Makaila Palmer

Art Educator

My name is Makaila Palmer and I am a recent BFA Drawing and Painting graduate from California State University of Long Beach. I grew up in the small, artsy community of Laguna Beach, California. Where I knew at a young age I knew I wanted to be an artist. I grew up on the ground of the Sawdust Art Festival as well as the Festival of the arts, where I now exhibit my work during the summer. Throughout the years, I strove to absorb as many mediums and techniques in the 2-D and 3-D world as possible. Today, I have worked with acrylic, oil, and tempera paint as well as photography, clay sculpture, ceramics, and jewelry casting and I have no intentions of stopping there. Looking forward to sharing my enthusiasm for the arts through this organization.
