Since 2004, after a long career in animation and television, Craig Handley has been honing his skills in his Sydney-based studio.
Craig creates more than art – he paints snapshots in time. According to him, his works are “a medley, a collage of all the things I come across while travelling about… a hodgepodge of places and objects and light.”
Transcending genres, Craig’s art constantly blurs the lines between realism and surrealism, narrative and observation.
South Coast, Narooma Collage Adopting a different approach for his hero piece, Craig used photography, trace, and paints to recreate this snapshot in time at Narooma Beach.

From every direction, Narooma Beach provides new insight and inspiration into the evanescent landscapes.
Dolphin Point, Burril Lakes looking North
This delicate outlook of Burril Lakes’ Dolphin Point by Craig blurs the lines between night and day. The contrasting use of greys and burnt oranges invite the viewer to step into the dusk as the sun sets behind the horizon.

From Kianga Point in North Narooma, the brooding sky is encouraged by the building anger of the sea crashing onto the sand.
