About the Artist -
Craig Campbell was born in Prestwick, Ayrshire, in 1960. This area of Scotland is abundant with golf courses, 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 went on to work as an illustrator for several of the leading agencies in London before joining the De Montfort Fine Art Publishers specialising in sport. His love for all sports, golf in particular, brought him back to Ayrshire and his love of painting, concentrating on sporting icons & portraiture.
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.
