Attending powwows, and ceremonies to fine-tune his knowledge, he has developed lasting relationships, learning tribal history and traditions.
Basing his imagery on historical figures such as Sitting Bull, Red Cloud, and Geronimo, Overton reimagines his subjects as if they were not influenced by history as we know it today. Each portrait radiates strength, resolve, pride, respect.
“Nothing compares to the freedom that was once experienced in the West, but people still crave it. I want to share that spirit … share it with others so they can feel freedom and strength.”
Overton’s work has been featured in Cowboys & Indians, Art Talk, and Southwest Art, and can be found in private collections across the country.
