Craig is one of Scotland's leading portraiture and figurative artists. Finalist in the Scottish Portrait Awards 2017.
Craig Campbell was born in Ayrshire , in 1960 . This area of Scotland is abundant with golf courses and playing fields , so it’s not surprising that the majority of his inspiration has come from sport and its personalities.
Craig studied at The Glasgow School of Art and then spent his early years working in London as a Graphic Illustrator for several of the leading agencies.
His love for all sports, golf in particular, brought him back to his painting.
The outstanding, Cutty Sark.
