About Craig Penny

Craig was born in Mildura in 1961, and at a very young age showed an interest in art and drawing. His family moved to the Western District of Victoria in 1970 and in 1976 his love of art saw him enrolled at Hamilton Technical School in the art course. At 16 his artistic interests expanded into ceramics and sculpture, and he constructed several wood fired kilns in his parents’ backyard.

Studying art at the Ballarat College of Advanced Education (now Ballarat University), painting and graphic design attracted most of his attention. He then carved out a successful career as an illustrator in the advertising industry and became a member of the Illustrators Association of Australia.

Craig has turned his hand to a range of mediums, including computer graphics skills, giving him a successful career in teaching both traditional drawing and illustration, and digital drawing and illustration at both Victoria University & Swinburne University. His love of using traditional methods was never lost, and subsequently he specialised in watercolour and acrylic painting and illustrations. This path gave Craig an extremely successful solo career.

In 2001, Craig had his first major solo exhibition at Manyung Gallery in Mt Eliza, Victoria. In 2007, his work was accepted by Gallery Diamante in Carmel California
