Ian Layton

Ian 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.
