A self-taught artist, Chris Down‘s work has been published for over two decades. His work first appeared in print in the late 1980’s when a magazine article featured his work. This led to commissions to produce art for two magazines. This was followed in 1994 with his first book commission to Illustrate The Encyclopaedia of Celtic Wisdom for Element Books. Since then his work has appeared in over 40 books. This includes the best selling Real Witches series for Thorsons-Element. Chris has also authored three books of his own. The last two, for publishers David & Charles, were reprinted in UK, American, German, French, Russian and Chinese editions .
For many years, Chris specialised in Celtic art. During that time, his art appeared on cards, window transparencies, mugs, coasters and wall plaques. Now Chris concentrates on fantasy art. Mostly producing digital paintings for print, Chris incorporates traditional techniques he learnt while book illustrating.
