Chris Down Celtic Designs

Welcome to the web site of artist and Illustrator Chris Down. That'll be me then. Here you will find examples of the different forms of art I have produced over the last 20 years. Some of which appear in the more than 50 books I have illustrated over that time. At the beginning, I focused on Celtic Art and there are still many examples here. My current work is often classified as fantasy art. I like to think it as portrait painting. Even if the portrait should be of a fairy, mermaid or dragon. There are plenty of other genres in here including Gothic art and Steampunk art. I like to investigate different directions to the art. Over the course of the year, I appear at a number of festivals and events selling my art direct. As I now do in the prints section of this web site.
