Paint Annapolis Spotlight 2021: Craig Reynolds

As a young man, Craig learned a deep appreciation for the outdoors, old farms, and barnacle-laden harbors with their history told by well-worn scars and patina earned from years of hard work. His father taught him to use his talents to record these memories with paint and canvas. Craig began painting professionally in 1984 while also maintaining his professional career. He began his full-time professional art business in 2005.
