Craig was born in Sheffield in 1965, but has lived in the West Midlands and North Wales before settling in County Durham. He has been drawing for as long as he can remember, and art was always his favourite subject at school. Managing to get a job as a cartoonist, Davidson drew for a variety of pre-school comics including The Wombles, Bangers & Mash, Huxley Pig and The Shoe People. After a few years Davidson moved on and began working for a computer games company as an animator as Games Designer.
While working there he amassed a large portfolio of games he worked on including The Hulk, Zorro and The Hurricanes as well as the concept and characters for the game Johnny Bazookatone. He also began to develop his 3D skills further, and moved into sculpting action figures for toy ranges such as Harry Potter, Me To You and Doctor Who. More years passed by and sculpting work became increasingly harder to find and in a quick rush painted a piece for a contest in which the famous fine artist Alexander Millar would select the winner as his apprentice. Surprisingly, Davidson finished in the top three and from the encouragement of his near-victory began painting with a passion. Davidson has been painting as a professional artist for galleries ever since.
