Craig Davison was born in 1965 in Sheffield and has enjoyed drawing for as long as he can remember. Art was Craig’s favourite subject at school, but once he left Craig took it no further. In the late 80’s Craig Davison managed to get a job as a cartoonist, working on pre-school comics. Craig drew comic strips of a variety of characters including The Shoe People, The Wombles, Huxley Pig and Bangers and Mash.

Drawing every day improved his skills and after a few years Craig moved on to work at a computer games company as an animator and games designer. During this period he worked on a wide portfolio of games, including Zorro, The Hulk and The Hurricanes, as well as the game concept and characters for Johnny Bazookatone.

It was there Craig Davison began sculpting reference figures for 3D animation, which he loved. This ultimately led to becoming a freelance sculptor, sculpting dragons to teddies, animals to action figures for ranges such as Me To You, Enchantica, Harry Potter and Doctor Who.

Years passed and sculpting work was getting harder to come by. But something else was around the corner: in late 2007 Craig noticed a contest in which Washington Green hoped to find Alexander Millar an apprentice. Craig had always wanted to try his hand at painting, but had never got around to it; here was his opportunity. Craig Davison quickly painted and entered a picture, and, to Craig’s surprise, he finished in the last three! That was it, the life of an artist beckoned.

Craig Davison began to paint seriously from that point and local galleries started to sell his work. Now he can’t imagine doing anything else.
