About Craig Lemmon

 
 
  • Biography
    I resurrected my love of oil painting while living in Germany in the early eighties, exhibiting in a local hotel and at a National Art and Health Fair in Erlangen. During my stay in Germany I started a book of Poetry, which was a collection of my thoughts - one poem written during my time in Germany “Proclaimers and Dreamers Reunite” was a Diploma Winner in the 1988 Scottish Open Poetry Competition.

    Upon my return to Scotland in 1984 I secured a university place, on the strength of my portfolio, to Grays School of Art. I deciding instead to look at the option of running my own Tour Company and I started my first company, Craigforth Travel, in 1986.

    Following 14 years of running school skiing tours and event travel packages to the Special Olympics World Summer and Winter Games from 1991 - 1999. In December 2000,aged 40, I decided to start a second company 2e-volve (UK) Limited, which provides bespoke ICT and Software Engineering solutions. 2e-volve (UK) employs 12 staff, operating from the company's base in Stirling.

    While growing both companies my oil painting was put on hold. It was not until 2008 that I was able to sit down and determine the direction I wanted to take my painting in and since this date I have produced over 12 large canvases in a unique style of vibrant colours, shapes and perspectives.
