Greg Overton

Bio

Born in 1970, Greg Overton has been creating western art since he was very young. He began emulating the works of Russell and Remington at the age of eight. Overton has always had a deep fascination with the west; particularly American Indian Warriors, as they pertain directly to his family. Overton is related to an Iroquois Chief, and Medicine Man, Eagle Plume. His ancestor John Dodds was a founding member of Jamestown and was married to Eagle Plume’s daughter Jane. He is now in the process of an Eagle Plume series to commemorate his family’s personal history.   Overton’s professional career began at the age of 16 when he illustrated the first of many rock music album covers. His commercial career lasted throughout his 20’s; he did everything from theater back drops to computer illustrations for the federal government. He also did work for amusement parks, even one as far away as Hong Kong. Overton switched back to his days as a child to the western art he once practiced. Overton was soon featured as an "artist to watch" by Southwest Art Magazine in 2004. His work has been featured in Cowboys And Indians, Art Talk and Southwest Art. Now collectors of his work come from all over the country. Overton does extensive research for each painting to better understand his subjects and maintain proper authenticity. Overton attends powwows and American Indian ceremonies to fine tune his appreciation for Indian Culture, as well as studying tribal history and always searching for his next model. Overton’s paintings are based on historical figures such as Sitting Bull, Red Cloud and Geronimo. Combining both historical photographs with his modern American Indian models Overton is able to create these amazing portraits dedicated to the American Indian way of life. With all the friends Overton has made through his research, he as a deep understanding of the certain needs of these tribes. He now spends time doing charity work with various tribes, and donates the proceeds from at least one painting each year to an American Indian cause.
