Craig has been studying, making, and teaching sculpture since 1981. Born and raised in Connecticut, Craig was influenced by the New England countryside changing with the seasons and filled with rolling hills, valleys cut by rivers and streams, outcroppings of colored stone, and towering deciduous and conifer trees. In contrast, his small urban town was a typical rust belt community suffering from years of boom and bust. A factory town in its glory days, it found itself home to people of many different cultures who brought their skilled labor to the industries. After the factories left, the town and its people fell into a depression the effects of which impacted Craig’s life, views, and work. His concerns and philosophy are global, and he believes art is for all people. His sculptures are informed by these influences and by poetry, existential thought, psychiatry, mythology, perception, physics, and the human figure.
