CHRIS DOWN

Living within walking distance of Stonehenge for pretty much all my life, I have long been inspired by the ancient landscape where I dwell.

I read Electronic Engineering at the University of Sussex, though I have never used the degree in anger, spending several years as an architectural technician then moving on to be a freelance illustrator, being self taught in both disciplines. The engineering background meant that I was not afraid to experiment with working digitally, which now forms the core of my colour work. Even when I paint digitally the pencil drawing is always at the heart of any composition.

As an illustrator I have supplied over a thousand images which have appeared in more than fifty five books. My own books have had English, American, French, German, Russian and Chinese editions.
