Craig Beman is not your typical artist. At the age of 46, God gave Craig the gift of sketching, 40 days after he and his wife, Peggy launched into a full-time ministry. As he continued to develop his art, he began to paint with mixed media. In 2006 he began painting traditional oils, which has become his favorite medium, with a focus on western landscape and cowboy genres. Craig grew up working on his father’s ranches in South Dakota and in the Sand Hills of Nebraska. His gift in art is far from his formal education with his degree in Economics from the University of Nebraska.
