About Peri Craig

'Art is a way to imprison for a moment the shining elusive element which is life itself - life hurrying past us and running away, too strong to stop, too sweet to lose.' ~Willa Cather~

ALL artwork shown is available for purchase. If what you desire does not provide that information, please contact the artist directly. All work comes with the Fine Art America 100% guarantee of quality.

About The Artist:
Peri Craig has been painting professionally since 1971, and has shown and sold her work throughout the Southwestern United States, Hawaii and Kenya. Always a painter, her work expanded quickly beyond photography and traditional oil painting to include acrylics (her preference), digitally created graphic art, sculpture and mixed media pieces. Peri now lives on a forty-acre privately owned retreat with friends, family, a great many dogs, occasional livestock, a very patient husband, and five cats who keep things running smoothly. Her three guiding principles in life are quality, honesty and integrity. It is for this reason that she has chosen to sell her work through Fine Art America.

Signed & Numbered Prints:
By popular demand, Peri has offered buyers the opportunity to have prints signed by artist 30+ days after delivery. Each will also bear a unique series number, at no additional charge except shipping and handling. Only 100 signed and numbered prints will be offered for any individual piece, thereby protecting your investment in these fine art prints.

Time For A Change

December 16th, 2012

As the year draws to a close, I find myself motivated toward simplifying my life in many ways. Complexity dampens my creativity, and having to hunt for something can completely overrun an artistic concept in its infancy. Today, reorganization of my p... 

Work In Progress

November 20th, 2012

I've often thought fleetingly is a project one is working on should called "Work In Progress," or "Work In Process." The painting I'm currently tackling (and at times it FEELS like tackling, and sometimes like punting) would definitely make me thing ... 

The Artist as Activist

October 12th, 2012

I have begun to realize that we, as artists, need to do more then simply portray the pleasantries. We are called upon, ethically, morally, to participate in life, to experience outrage and sadness, as well as joy, and to communicate that to others, a... 

Wendy Wasserstein once said: "Sometimes I want to clean up my desk and go out and say, respect me, I'm a respectable grown-up, and other times I just want to jump into a paper bag and shake and bake myself to death” I can appreciate her sentiments... 

A Very Busy Autumn

September 16th, 2012

Six more days until the Autumn truly begins, but the weather has begun to chill in the very early hours of the morning, and some of the more cold sensitive plants have begun to look a little wilted and forlorn. I had a very busy day painting, harvest... 

A Big Step

September 5th, 2012

Today I got the keys to my own gallery. Floored in large 18" Tuscany-style buffed Travertine tiles, white walls, amazing sunlight and luxuriously deep window ledges that absolutely scream terracotta pots with bright flowers! It is two rooms, one beh... 

The Double Nickles

August 26th, 2012

Yesterday was my birthday, and I was spoiled beyond all hopes of spoilage! I actually find it rather difficult to receive presents, far easier to give them, but I am so very pleased that my family knows me so very, very well! From my youngest son ... 

Yesterday I became the proud subject of a press release, the month-long gallery showing at Sarasvati began, and today I stayed nose to the grindstone until I completed the most recent canvas: Magdalena de los Gitanas. My back and shoulders know how d... 


July 5th, 2012

Today begins my first gallery showing in over a decade! Nervous? Not really, and I suppose that's odd, but since having people see my portfolio on Fine Art America, I've begun to accept that this "new me" of bright colors is not too far-out for peopl... 


June 28th, 2012

Today I've made my first sale in twenty-five years. Somewhere in New York, there is someone waiting to put Slipstream on their wall, and also awaiting delivery of two of my Oriental series pieces in greeting card size. Its a bit disconcerting, but in... 


June 1st, 2012

I am rapidly learning that not only has my artistic style greatly changed, so has my endurance! I used to think nothing of working all night, grabbing a shower and then running all day. Twenty-five years ago. Still, the "imitation self-confidence" I ... 

Beginning Again

May 29th, 2012

I have primarily focused on my photographic art during the "child raising years." It was fast, immediate gratification that could be done in the odd fragments of time when the tasks of the day had been whisked out of the way within an hour or two of ...
