This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Denver, Colorado, Mabel Palmer became a painter of historical and contemporary western action scenes and also did numerous studies of animals. Among her subjects were wagon trains, stagecoach genre, trail drives, roundups, wild horses and Indian genre. Until 1960, she worked primarily as a woodcarver, but in 1960 she began painting in oil, watercolor, and acrylics.

She grew up on a cattle ranch near Burwell, Nebraska, and there was exposed to the subject matter she later depicted. She also learned woodcarving from her artistic mother. At the age of 16, she traveled the West in a covered wagon with her family so that her father could sell the gold wire jewelry he made. In the early 1920s, she studied telegraphy for two years at Griffith Junior College in Denver with the goal of working for a railroad company. However, because she was a female, she could not find work in this area, so she took odd jobs that included sign painting, woodcarving, caretaking at a reservoir fishing resort, and working as a carnival concessionaire and ceramist.

In 1929, she married Carlton Palmer in Georgetown, Colorado, lived in Denver several years and then moved to California where she lived in Arbuckle and Sonoma. In the late 20th century, she was still living in Sebastopol.
