Ian Layton

Ian Layton was born in Mexborough in 1953 and expressed an interest in drawing and painting from an early age.

Growing success as an artist allowed him to fulfil a desire to paint on his own terms, painting daily, dividing his time between his studio and locations throughout the U.K. and abroad.

His paintings are a celebration of light and atmosphere, he particularly enjoys capturing the transient aspects of weather and the 'contre-jour' effect of painting directly into the light.

His work has been displayed at many prestigious institutions, exhibiting at:

The Royal Academy
The New English Art Club
The Royal Institute of Painters
The Royal Society of Marine Artists
The Royal Society of British Artists

Ian is a member of the Northern Boys group of artists, his work is held in public and private collections both nationally and internationally.
