Craig was born in 1965 in Sheffield and managed to get a job as a cartoonist, working on pre-school comics. He then moved on to work at a computer games company as an animator and games designer and it was there he began sculpting reference figures for 3D animation, ultimately leading to becoming a freelance sculptor. In late 2007 he finished in the final three of a painting competition and the life of an artist beckoned. He began to paint seriously from that point and local galleries started to sell his work. Now he can’t imagine doing anything else.
