Born in Ottawa in 1951, Philip Craig attended Sheridan College in Oakville Ontario as a graphic design student. In 1971, he returned to Ottawa to take up a position with the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation as a television graphic/set designer and a few years later, won the position of Art Director for C.B.C. in St. John's Newfoundland. Throughout his design career, Philip continued to paint and experiment with the acrylic medium. By 1985, demand for his art, prints and posters had become so great, he was forced to choose between painting full time or remaining with the corporation. He decided to resign, return to Ottawa and pursue his talents in the Fine Arts.
