Collectors include, James Garner, Neil Simon, Toyota Corporation, UCLA Dental and Law School,

and several gold medals.
The "Arts for the Parks" national competition awarded
Craig the Grand Teton Natural History Award for a painting entitled "Dining Alone".
He is collected in the United States, Asia as well as Europe.

In 1974 Craig began teaching at Art Center College of Design.
For the past 23 years he has been sharing his knowledge at the Academy of Art University
in San Francisco where he is Director of Fine Art, MFA & BFA Drawing and Painting.

Craig is currently a Signature Member of the California
