| ||Courtney Davis |
“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.” Pat Fish
