Craig started his love of arts at a very young age in an art league in Elkhart, Indiana. He continued his work as a fine artist and a commercial artist in New York studying at the School of Visual Arts in NYC. While in N.Y., Craig was hired to work with companies such as Gucci and Etienne Aigner and Cotton Inc. illustrating and designing commercially. Craig has won dozens of awards as a creative director commercially over the past 20 years.
Within the fine arts he is a sculptor, a watercolorist, a printmaker and has extensive works in inks and graphite and the digital arts. Craig’s passion in the fine arts delves into the Surreal, working in so many mediums has allowed him to meld elements into stunning single frame stories for the viewer to reveal. Craig shares a wealth of knowledge with his students helping them to find their own path and think creatively through various media he teaches. 2012 Craig began to work with fellow artist William McMahan and has created in collaboration his best work to date. One of the collaborative works “Auctus Metamorphosis” (in the gallery above) was selected to appear in the 2013 62nd Annual All Florida Juried Art Show at the Boca Museum of Art in Boca Raton, Florida and in the Gallery of Avondale Artworks. The work was also accepted into the prestigious Boston Printmakers 2013 North American Print Biennial. The work represents a centerpiece of 13 linked etchings that are in various stages of being completed.
