Welcome to TrailBayCraig Artworks. Come vibe with me on this creative adventure where I play with ideas and delve into unchartered territory. I am constantly exploring and experimenting; drawing inspiration from the epic trees, the mesmerizing ocean and captivating landscapes that define the Sunshine Coast. My canvas is my playground for endless discovery.

My Story

My name is Craig Schneider. Vancouver born and raised, I have always enjoyed the freedom of sketching and painting on my own terms while listening to all kinds of music to set the mood. I spent many summers  on the Sunshine Coast with my family and always felt free and at ease whether it be exploring the beaches and the trails, drawing, collecting rocks or  widdling sticks by the beach fire.  As good fortune would have it, I am now calling the Sunshine Coast home!​ With newfound free time, I have rekindled my passion for painting. I am self taught and it has become my zen place, a solid source of peace in the midst of coastal living. Living on the Coast provides me endless inspiration with its surrounding beauty and is a constant reminder of how fortunate I am.​ When not on the canvas you may find me walking with my wife and German Shepherd, hosting friends and families at the homestead, catching up with our kids, building beach fires or hanging at one of the many local hotspots. Just a regular Coaster soaking it all in.  


Don't be shy.  Let's connect!
