Craig Taylor began painting professionally in 1980 after being commissioned to paint five race horses for the limited edition publication titled: Notable Australian Thoroughbreds. Soon after he sold a painting of a famous Australian racehorse Dulcify to Baron Peter Von Kapp Herr, who was the president of the Baden Baden Racing Club in Germany. He was then commissioned by an Australian publisher to paint the racehorse Octagonal for a limited edition print. More recently he was asked to paint the Melborne Cup winner, Might and Power, which was also made into a limited edition print. In the early eighties he was asked to exhibit several paintings of Phar Lap for a major exhibition to coincide with the release of the movie Phar Lap. He shared the exhibition with Sir Patrick Kilvington at the George Styles Gallery in Sydney. About twenty years ago he began painting and drawing figure work, specialising in the female nude. He also paints landscapes, heavy horse teams, cattle mustering scenes, ballet dancers, birds and flowers. His preferred mediums are oils or pastels. He has been represented in the following galleries: Articles Fine Arts Gallery, Boyd Fine Art, The Aarwun Gallery, Moulton Galleries, Ryder's Gallery and Joan's Ridge Street Gallery. His portrait commissions include: Famous Australian Jockey, Malcolm Johnston, Radio personality John Laws, commissioned by radio station 2UW, Rugby League captain, Steve Mortimer, commissioned by the Canterbury Council. He has also painted several famous racing journalists: Keith Robbins, Bert Lillye, Bill Whittaker and Tom Brassel. All were commissioned by either News Limited or John Fairfax. His paintings are represented in Australia, England, Germany, Japan and other countries. He has been teaching art for the past twenty eight years at private premises in Gymea. He is listed in the Max Germaine publication, Artists and Galleries of Australia. He is an exhibiting member of The Royal Art Society.
