EARLY LIFE:
At the age of 6 he constructed a timber workstation at his Granddads joinery shed intending to be his art corner for home.

It was from here that regular creations appeared, ranging from carved garden gates to bird tables. It wasn’t many years before the next big move “to the garage” came along where he began work on some commissioned work.

EDUCATION:
Craig gained 9 A*- C grade G.C.S.E's. At this point he was torn, to develop a practical career within joinery or continue education to A level; he decided on both.
