A native Oregonian, Craig was born in Portland. He studied art at Biola College and the University of Oregon. Although life has moved him up and down the west coast, the Willamette Valley has always felt like home, and in 1996, he and his wife Lori returned to Eugene, Oregon. Craig's first solo show was at LaFollette Gallery in the fall of 2006. Since then, he has appeared at a number of shows, including the Cannon Beach Stormy Weather Arts Festival, and the Greenwich Workshop Smallworks North America Exhibition in Connecticut. He has shared shows with artists including Frank Hettick, Rod Frederick, and William S. Phillips.
Craig's primary focus is landscapes, although he also ventures into architectural, figurative and still life subjects. His strongest influences are the drawing skills of the Renaissance masters, the color genius of the Venetian masters, and he strives to echo America's own Hudson River School of painters.
Craig is represented by Caswell Gallery, and is participating in the Quick Draw event at the 2015 Fall Festival Of The Arts.
