After receiving a BFA degree in Illustration from Virginia Commonwealth University in 1991, Craig's artistic pursuits led him to New York City where he began applying his illustration background into Fine Art oil paintings.
He quickly established himself in New York’s underground art scene throughout the 90's. Exhibiting at venues including CBGB’s 313 Gallery, The Gershwin Gallery, and also directing performance art, influenced by his paintings, at the Mazer Theater in Lower Manhattan. Commercial illustration work eventually brought him to Los Angeles, where he worked for Pixar, Disney, Warner Brothers, and Ridley Scott designing storyboards, and concept illustrations for commercials, trailers, theatrical displays, and short films.
Craig's art incorporates humanlike forms with surreal landscapes and underlying environmental themes attempting to reconnect the viewer with the natural world. Craig now resides in Venice, CA where he is revisiting and expanding his first series of paintings 'Organica: Union with the Plan'.
