Born in Mildura, Craig became interested in art and drawing from an early age and built a successful career as a professional artist. In 1970 the family moved to Victoria and Craig's love for art and his artistic interests extended to ceramics and sculpture.
As an art student at Ballarat University, painting and graphic design captured most of his attention which enabled him to pursue a successful career in illustration as a member of the Illustrator's Association of Australia for many years. Craig has skills in a variety of fields including computer graphics and has taught traditional drawing, illustration and digital drawing at the University of Victoria and Swinburne University.
Craig has never lost his love for traditional methods and specializes in watercolor, acrylic painting and illustration.
In 2001, Craig had his first major solo exhibition and since then, numerous exhibitions and awards. His work has been accepted by galleries in Australia, Singapore, Southeast Asia and California as well as many private collections and is in high demand today.
