    Charly Palmer was born June 29, 1960 in Fayette, Alabama. and raised in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Since 1981 he's made a career of Graphic Design and Illustration. In 1992 along with his partner, he moved to Stone Mountain, Georgia and opened a design, illustration studio- TP Design, Inc. In four (4) short years, their studio has been featured in more than 20 different publications. The studio established a who's who list of clients like Coca-Cola. IBM Pepsi, Disney, McDonalds and the list goes on.

    As if this wasn't enough, Charly continued to pursue his fine art dreams. His work has been featured on television and in many publications such as Essence Magazine, Ebony, and Upscale.

    "What makes my work unique, is not what I'm saying , but how I'm saying'. A trademark of my art is the circles, and hidden messages though cut the piece. What I have also discovered is that my work is most successful when I allow the experience to happen. and not control it."

    His remarkable images are done with acrylic and marbleized papers on board.
