Brought up in Cornwall, Crosby did his foundation work in Fine Art at Falmouth School of Art, prior to taking a BA in 3-D at Kingston Polytechnic. Returning to Cornwall in the mid 1980s, he has worked as a graphic designer, art school tutor and community artist, while living near Falmouth.
His work was exhibited in the Kneehigh Theatre exhibition 'Skin of ya teeth' (1997), the 'All Hands on Deck' automata exhibition at Falmouth Art Gallery (1998) and in the '20 Years of Contemporary Art at Falmouth Art Gallery' exhibition (1998). A primary interest and love is automata, due to the way this kind of sculptural and kinetic art crosses so many fields of creativity and skill.
