Craig Lafferty Artist Bio:
Craig found the roots of creativity while studying graphic design at the University of Memphis. This would have been the formal training although he had been drawing and painting since he was a child. After 3 years of studying in Memphis, he transferred to Arizona State University to experience the southwest culture and continue studying art. Academics kept him busy but he worked part time for a company helping design tourism logos and medical illustrations. This latter endeavor led to a shift of efforts to go to medical school. Over the next 20 years, Craig continued painting and drawing but scientific and medical research were the primary aspects of focus as a career. A focused return to art came via photography in the digital age. Although the love for film and the darkroom are still present, the technology in today’s cameras and software leads to endless creativity for the manipulation of images. Photography brought about a full-circle return to painting. The latest images reflect an exploration of encaustic and coldwax mixed with oil paints. These techniques have translated into unique abstract and landscape pieces.
