“For everyone involved in the current renaissance of Celtic art, Courtney Davis is our inspirational grandfather. With his ubiquitous fine art designs reproduced on all manner of New Age kitsch, his career has served to awaken an entire generation to the glories of Celtic art. His prodigious output of 50 books has made him a legend in his time. Because he has licensed his work to so many, his work has become the equivalent of traditional folk songs, familiar and with a timeless quality.”
Courtney Davis was born in South Wales, on the night of All Hallows, and a few hours before the Great Celtic Festival of Samhain. He spent many years working on his art and books in Dorset in the West Country of the U.K and came to West Cork, in Ireland to live in 2013 and invited to Hill of Tara in 2014
Courtney has created over 50 published books and regularly exhibited his art in the U.K. And U.S.A., Europe and Japan. Displays of his work have included the British Museum at the Matter Of Britain Exhibition, the Cathedrals of Tewkesbury, Salisbury and Worcester.
He has been filmed for two documentaries in the U.K. and numerous TV talk shows in the U.S.A.
At New Year 2017 his art was projected onto buildings and sacred sites across Ireland as part of the Illuminate Her Story Festival.
