Craig Bone  Artworks >>

Craig Bone was born in Salisbury, Rhodesia. He studied Graphic Art at Natal University in South Africa. In 1973 Craig returned to Rhodesia to perform his National Service in the Rhodesian army. During this time he painted scenes of combat and was totally immersed in the war. Craig was severely wounded by a mortar attack, which almost cost him his legs and his life. Due to these injuries, Craig’s focus turned to painting full time. Craig has since devoted his time, energy and skills to helping various organizations and charities. Craig's strong sense of community spirit and his passion for the military has encouraged him to support veteran programs throughout the United States and in Zimbabwe. Craig has been awarded the Safari Club Medal of Valor for his consistent support and dedication to the Veteran's Committee, and in 2003, Craig was also awarded the Safari Club International Wildlife Artist of the year. Due to his obvious passion and support of veteran programs, Craig was honored to participate in the official opening of Fort Bragg's Airborne and Special Operations Museum in North Carolina. To date he has illustrated several books. Source Altermann.com
