Nigel Overton


Nigel studied Drawing, Painting & Printmaking at Loughborough College of Art & Design. This was followed by a Post Graduate Teaching course in Leeds.

He has worked with a wide range of different media concentrating more on Acrylics in recent years. Whichever medium he has used however, he has always maintained his belief in the importance of drawing, both in his own work and within his teaching of the subject.

His fascination with Landscapes & Seascapes has remained since his early years as an art student, and drawing and painting continue to provide him with the visual means of expressing his personal and emotional response to an ever- changing subject.

Formerly Head of Art & Design at Benton Park School Rawdon, Nigel now paints professionally and teaches day and residential classes.

Nigel has work in private collections in America, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, France, Germany, Netherlands, Ireland and throughout the UK.
