About Craig

Craig was born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah. He attended Utah State University studying under Glen Edwards, Professor of Art in Illustration. His first job and mentor was Larry Winborg at his studio: Winborg and Winborg. There he learned the art business and in 1976 started his own art studio, Fetz Designs. For over forty years Craig has completed illustration and design work for clients.

Craig was elected to the Society of Illustrators, New York, in 1976. His illustrations have been featured in New York, the Society of Illustrators Annuals, and illustration shows and publications.

Craig has also pursued fine art. "I like to follow the traditions of many illustrators whom I admire, Rockwell, Homer, Wyeth, Parrish, and others, who used their illustration training and experience to become fine artists."

Craig's pastels use a complexity of drawing overlays of color to create the intricacies of nature. His paintings project historical color schemes with the hope of capturing light and mood within a moment in time.

Craig's paintings, pastels and drawings have been featured in solo gallery shows, the Springville Art Museum, the St. George Art Museum, Utah Images Show, Davis County Fine Art exhibit and several times at the Sears Dixie Invitational Art Show, winning multiple awards.

Craig supports and encourages art in the community, having served as the Chairman of the St. George Art Commission, and on the board of the Visual Arts Association. He was previously a Change Leader with the Utah Division of Arts and Museums. Craig is a member of the Oil Painters of America, the Pastel Society of America and  the American Impressionist Society.

Craig works from his studio in beautiful Southern Utah.
