Lois Palframan‘s parents went to Leeds Art College where they became evangelical Christian missionaries. Their own life is influenced by their reaction to religion through art, and early experience of music. Always drawn, becoming more refined into markmaking by a process of improvisation. Having gained a degree in Environmental Science and an MA in Art at Leeds Metropolitan University, Palframan won a scholarship to study philosophy via the International Society for Philosophers.
Palframan has made many artists books entirely of drawings (post-conceptual) which are in international exhibitions and collections including Tate’s library. The artist has shown work widely in solo and group exhibitions. Over the past 2 years, they have worked with improv musicians producing audiovisual concerts (Iklectik, London and Access, Sheffield), playing and vocalising drawings.
