One of the earliest images created by CK. Arthur is the fleeting face in the trees, that you just glimpse out of the corner of your eye, but when you look again it's gone.

The artist 'CK' was born to working class parents in Slough in 1952 and from an early age was capable of drawing birds and animals. Living close to the outskirts of the town meant he had access to wide swathes of countryside running up to the famous Black Park Nature Reserve and his connection to the world of myths was already being established. A carear in advertising took him all over the world for nearly 15 years until the age of 35 when he re-married and settled down to life in Sussex.
A change in religious views in his early twenties and his travel with the advertising industry gave him an opporunity to see places many of us only dream of visiting and excursions into jungles and wilderness areas brought him in to drect contact with native peoples around the world who, all must have, had some influence on his spirituality. Recent work has included mythological characters such as phoenix's, unicorns and dragons, some of whch we may include here at a later date.
In the meatime please take a while looking through the following images.
A slightly controversial image of the greenman wearing a crown of thorns.
A watercolour image of excalibur and the greenman at the base. Our illustration here doesn't really do this justice.
A protest against the destruction of trees around the world. You can almost hear this character shouting. Those in the know will also see this as Greg of the Pentacle Drummers.
One of the fastest selling prints produced by the artist. Alongside The Owl and the Greenman this outsells all of the other images.
A section of the illustration Kiss of Spring that appeared on the back page of Pagan Dawn on their Beltane issue.
Whilst the original image of this painting sold a long time ago, Greeting Cards and prints are still available from the limited print runs.
A complete charge of style and mediums for this Greenman based on the Pentacle Drummers of Eastbourne.
This original painting was produced on reclaimed mdf board as part of an idea to recycled old materials.
Rhiannan's Guardian is owned by the Coughlin family based in Spain.
A section from a very large format painting currently on display at Chi Coffee, North End in Portsmouth.
A large format painting currently on display at Chi Coffee in North End, Portsmouth. Well worth a visit just to see this magnificent image or to buy it. At just £400 we think this is well worth the money.
