About the artist -
Craig Campbell was born in Prestwick , 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 .
His close attention to detail soon earned him prestigious exhibitions including a tour of the USA and a show at the British Open . Accuracy and genuine enthusiasm for sport enables Craig to capture the fleeting instant on canvas with all the speed and energy of the game .
