It all began with Patton and a plantation.

Sporting Artisans was an idea born in part from a painting I did of a National Open Retriever Champion - 5 Star General Patton. Patton graced a line of t-shirts and I started getting requests for them. Then I remembered a book called "The Sporting Life" in which two friend's houses were featured, and I though that it would be nice to have a place on line where I could offer a wide range of artwork and products that fit the outdoor and sporting lifestyle - just like I saw in the houses featured in that book.

Sporting Artisans is an art site first and foremost. It's also a personal site. If you call, you won't get a computer or a menu to wade through. You'll get a real person. I may have to call you back, but you'll talk to a real person. And if you prefer to text or e-mail, you'll also get a real person, which is usually me. I also can put you in touch directly with an artist if it is necessary.

Many items on this site can customized or commissioned. The items on this site are here because I consider them all to be works of art. 

Hopefully, you’ll come back often, because more and more art and artists will be added frequently. Plus, these folks happen to be some very nice people - as well as very talented of course.

Thanks for stopping by.
