Ellsworth Overton is a self-taught artist who works with oils and watercolours. Growing up living in Canada, with long cold winters, and before the arrival of television, he loved spending his time painting.
He went on to study art, informally, in Europe and North America, and sold works for private and civic collections in Australia and Overseas. He is a member of several art societies, including, since 1980 the Victoria Arts Society.
'I hope this exhibition will give the viewer an inner feeling of how I feel when I walk into Victoria’s lush fern gullies. A person can just see the dreams of fantasy all around, so in my paintings I try to invoke this.'
