Michael Overton humbly describes himself as a primarily self taught tinkerer and artist. We know this is a modest description because he holds a Bachelor’s Degree in History from Michigan State University, with an emphasis in historical preservation. Michael has spent time on archeological digs, and has been creating historically inspired art since childhood. He is a talented graphic artist, working with several advanced technologies, however costuming and props is one of the few things that lets Michael combine his many interests; from anthropology and history through sciences, sculpture and other visual arts. Michael has recently increased his artistic focus toward in creating props and accoutrements which is how these fine items came to be.
Donar’s Oak is pleased to be displaying samples of Michaels work at events we attend, and purchases can be made on site. The artist is accepting commissions as well. Talk to us for details.
