As a painter, sculptor, illustrator and printmaker Craig is always engaged in the making process and is constantly searching out and developing new ways of creating work.
He is currently exploring the border between land and sea and attempts to capture the essence of this meeting.
Craig’s style has a simple, likeable immediacy with wide appeal.
Much of his inspiration comes from coastal Devon and a specific area in Cornwall where he has drawn and painted for several years.
His original training as a sculptor has influenced the ways in which he now makes his paintings. The use of mixed media work and techniques in which the paint is applied in an intentional and overt physical process gives the finished pieces a unique and expressive surface quality.
This original work in acrylic medium on a board is set within a 2.5cm deep white box frame and comes ready to hang.
The work is signed and titled on the right hand edge and is also titled, dated and signed on the reverse.
His work is shown in many galleries predominantly in the South West of England.
