Craig A. Staufer

Craig Staufer has been an artist since his childhood. He began oil painting by age 12 and was selling art throughout high school.  Winning numerous awards, he went on to major in Art at Kent State University.

Having been raised on a farm in rural northeast Ohio, Craig has always had a deep love for nature and also local farms and historical buildings.

He began painting outside from life in his teens and it is still his favorite form of approaching art. This is now known as “Plein air”.

“I hope that some of the spirit and atmosphere of my subjects comes through in my paintings.” says Craig.

His studio is in a restored 1834 farmhouse in Medina County Ohio.
