Cragemia was born into the bloodline of a ‘first-generation’ artist his father Edward Chiwawa. Cragemia is not only a sculptor but also a professional pilot together with his friends and sons of famous sculptor artist Henry Munyaradzi, one of Zimbabwe’s greatest sculptors. Cragemia qualified as a freelance pilot in 2006 and still sculpts along side his flying career.
Cragemia realised his skills in 1990 and practised his art in the Tengenenge Sculpture Community. His sculptures are displayed across the globe and he continues to build rapport internationally.
