Nigel Overton

Nigel was born in Doncaster in 1952, He has an extensive background in the Arts field, including a BA in Fine Art Painting and Drawing and was formerly the Head of Art & Design at Benton Park School in Leeds.

Since leaving college Nigel has continued to develop his passion for Landscape and Seascape painting and now paints professionally from his studio based in Ilkley, West Yorkshire.

He has worked with a wide range of different media and techniques but has always maintained his belief in the importance of drawing both within his own work and his teaching of Art and Design.

Nigel has continued to gain much inspiration from his native Yorkshire, especially the East Coast. He has however been drawn recently to the unique and dramatic coastline of Southern Ireland. All of Nigel’s Southern Ireland works can be seen at ‘The Gallery’ County Kerry.
