I'm an artist by trade first and foremost. I started Sporting Artisans in 2008 because I wanted to showcase talented artists and artisans who specialize in creating great works of art that celebrate wildlife, the outdoors and the sporting life. Many of them I met through our mutual attendance at national art shows, and many of them have become good friends, which is the added bonus.
My goal for this web site is to be a place to find unique, custom, high-quality and hard-to find sporting, wildlife and outdoor artwork and products. Carvings, original paintings, etchings, commissioned portraits, jewelry, sculptures, murals, music, furniture, crystal, dinnerware and more are found here, or will be added soon. Between paintings, I try to find the time to discover and add more artists whose work I'm excited about.
Many of these artists can be commissioned to create custom works specifically for you. So if you don't see exactly what you want on the site, or if a piece that you liked just sold, just contact me and I'll put you in touch with them. Many products can be customized, and there are some here you won't find anywhere else.
I try to keep the shipping affordable, so remember that except for a few oversized items, there is free ground shipping on most orders $50 and over.
I'm also committed to making sure you are happy with the works you purchase here. It isn't hard to do, because the quailty and integrity of each artist does a lot of the work for me.
Thanks for stopping by. And feel free to call me directly anytime at 231-922-2292.
