Process

In 2009 my passion for brush and ink work took Craig Yamey to Hội An, to study Vietnamese calligraphy for 3 months.

As a graphic designer, he loves to use a strong black line, creating a vivid interpretation of the natural world. Craig's creative process is driven by imagination; a visual language that combine elements of reality with fantasy. Painting becomes a meditation in which he loses himself for hours.
