Hi, I'm Craig

I’m an artist. I am visually impaired and I could never have imagined I would be able to say I make a living doing what I was meant to do!

However, thanks to technology and the support of my friends, family, and patrons, my dream I thought I had lost two decades ago is real. I have learned so much along the way and can't wait to share my experiences with you!

What I believe

I believe we will solve the world’s toughest issues, like the changing climate, the obesity epidemic and the social injustices that plague our communities. 

I believe AI, robotics and other technological advances will usher in a higher level of Human Intelligence (HI) as we catapult into a future of abundance, longevity, and sustainability. 

I believe my Art is a catalyst for action, self-expression, hope, and curiosity to people and communities as we journey together into an era of social evolution and human ingenuity.

Through this project, I hope to stimulate your senses and open your eyes to the possibilities of a richer, purpose-driven life centered around expanding your creative, social and emotional intelligence. 

I'll show you how I create my art, push the boundaries of my own disability, and learn from the experiences of being part of something much bigger than myself.


The Project


The Grapevine Wall is a social art project and global community for those looking to cultivate a life of creativity and purpose.

It is a gateway to a new level of thinking, preparing you for a fast-approaching future where anything is possible.

Countdown to 2030

The future of our civilization will be defined by what we do over the next decade. Each VINE is a separate work of art and tells a piece of this defining moment in time.

The canvas is shaped by our actions, forming an organic 360-degree real-time documentary of humanity’s journey into a hyper-connected, digitized, global civilization.

A Race to Human Intelligence 2.0

As we enter a new era of sustainable abundance and human progress, a clear understanding of ethics and values is crucial to guide us as we encounter new exponential challenges and opportunities.


A new level of creative and social intelligence is needed to grow alongside these exponential technological advancements, and allow us to ask better questions and make decisions to benefit the good of all; planet, people and prosperity.


My goal with this project is to help you learn, grow and share the possibilities of a new purpose-driven reality through creativity, connection, and open-minded curiosity.

Why Patreon?


How your support helps

Your support will allow me to make a bigger impact as I extend globally to engage communities and schools to grow a positive message for a sustainable, abundant future.

Grow Creative Flow Spaces
Safe environments for connecting, sharing and growing our creative, social and emotional intelligence. Ya know, the stuff that makes us uniquely human!

Funding helps with printing, travel, presentations, displays, signage, giveaways, collaborations, venue costs, programming, AR/VR development, and so many other moving parts.

Please consider becoming a patron


Project Details

Each VINE is a page in this story of transformation and created independently from the rest of the Grapevine Wall. VINES are started in two distinct ways: Either from the lines and colors from the adjacent VINE or from the lines drawn by the co-creators at an event or private session.


369 VINES

The master plan of the Grapevine Wall is a cube with five chapters, generating a 360-degree immersive experience made up of 369 VINES (80 VINES/side chapters, 49 VINES/top chapter).

We're in Chapter Two

"The Awakening"
In this chapter, we are witnessing advancements faster than ever before. A convergence of advanced technologies growing exponentially has entered the disruptive stage.




New Year’s Eve, 2029


The final completed VINE will be revealed. The project started over five years ago and will continue until 2030 with two New VINES added to the Wall each month.

How will it end?


The answer is within us. We control this storyline. We can create a wonderful story, it starts with how you see the world.




As the project grows, it will become the largest single art collective ever conceived, with hundreds of stories and emotional meanings that make it a shared journey for all.

Co-created VINES

In the video and images below, you can see how the process of the lines drawn by co-creators turns into a new VINE. Nobody knows what the piece will become until completed.



Each line is numbered and tagged to the participant's name for recognition as a co-creator of the VINE and supporter for a safer, more sustainable future.





And it Grows
Once the VINE is completed, it is added to the wall, and other VINES are grown from each side of the artwork. All non-co-created VINES are created from only the lines and colors that extend from the co-created VINES. 

About Me

I am an artist, environmentalist and social entrepreneur dedicated to using my time and talents to spread the message of hope and human compassion through my art and public speaking. I provide public and private events to help spread a strong, positive message of sustainability and social justice with respect to a changing climate.


After being diagnosed in college with a rare form of macular degeneration, I was determined to live a life of purpose and inspire others to never stop reaching for their dreams.

I use the Grapevine Wall experience as a tool to invite and inspire audiences to explore the consequences of their actions, think critically about pressing issues and make the environment personal.

Every Patron is Appreciated
I always want to continue to grow and expand the experience, whether it be upgrading equipment, collaborating with other artists and activist, traveling to far locations, or providing inspirational and educational collateral. Every bit helps, and I am forever grateful for your support. 

All patrons are forever memorialized on the recognition page, as well as the living, interactive storybook no matter what level you are. This interactive storybook is updated as the art is created and events happen around the world and will be integrated into the virtual reality experience. 



While I will always make sure I am giving the greatest value to my patrons for supporting the Grapevine Wall project, the most rewarding part is knowing we are all connected to every single patron, co-creator and collaborator around the world as part of a mission to lead the transition into a brighter future for our planet and our children.

Thank you all for the strength and support, and I look forward to this journey we take together.

How does it work?
Patreon is a platform that lets friends and fans support the creative process of the artists they love in return for exclusive rewards. My patrons pledge as little as $1 per artwork created to fund the ongoing creation and collaboration and help build the largest art collective to grace this beautiful world. You can set a maximum dollar amount to pledge each month regardless of how many I complete.

I understand that not everyone is in a position to financially support the artists they love... if that's the case, no sweat. I still really appreciate your support in every other way. Whether that's you spreading the word, sharing a link, or doing something like being kind and compassionate to a complete stranger... it all helps in the end, and is very much appreciated.

My intention since the day I completed the first VINE was to create art that brings people together and drive a deeper connection to each other and the environment. To create stories and emotions that entertain people and challenge me as a visually impaired artist. I am so fortunate to have fans like you! People who are willing to help fortify me and be a part of who I am and what I do. Your support means the world to me! I have big plans that will entertain and inspire you in so many ways.
