Craig was born in southern California, where he first spotted the outline of a fish in a surf board. In the 1980s, he began using recycled surf boards to create whimsical fish for the local businesses.
Today, in his Pine Street studio - a former house and store - Scott's Grocery circa 1918 - Craig uses foam surfboards to mold marvelous one-of-a-kind creatures.
