the Craig Alan collection
artist bio

Craig was born in San Bernardino, CA in 1971. His first art lessons were during his sophomore year at the University of Mobile, AL, but he somehow knew, even as a toddler, that art would play a major role in his life. He was given an area award for attaining a 4.0 in his major in college. Craig also minored in theatre, where he learned to do makeup and create sets. He was featured in college’s “Art with a Southern Drawl” exhibition, where only 42 pieces were chosen out of 1600 submissions.

Having traveled to Utah and Colorado in his pursuit of fly fishing and rock climbing, and now residing in Georgia, Craig appreciates and has found inspiration in nature. His love of nature is reflected in his still lifes and landscapes, but he also enjoys doing portraits.

In the near future, Craig would like to journey across the USA, then travel to Europe, seeking his roots and studying the artwork in England and Scotland. He would like to learn as much as possible about art-from the proper way to handle artwork, to framing, to archival techniques, “everything from A-Z”. Each artist, each technique, each medium he learns about enriches him.

Craig wants to earn his MA in studio studies and eventually teach at the college level. His biggest dream, however, is to own and manage his own atelier.
