Porter Art Guild is the embodiment of the creative journey shared by John and Tracy Porter, a married, entrepreneurial couple whose lives have been intertwined since their meeting in Chicago. Born in Illinois and Wisconsin, respectively, their paths converged when Tracy returned from living in Paris. United by their shared passion for art, they embarked on a new chapter in their lives, settling on a 21-acre farmette in the tranquil countryside of Wisconsin.

It was here, amidst the rolling hills and wide-open skies, that John and Tracy's artistic vision truly took flight. They founded a hand-painted furniture company, pouring their energy and enthusiasm into each unique piece. As their reputation grew, so did the demand for Tracy's captivating artwork, which soon found its way onto a myriad of surfaces, from apparel + rugs to elegant dinnerware.

With curiosity and commitment, John and Tracy have explored the intersections of creativity and commerce, navigating the worlds of retail, manufacturing, e-commerce, sourcing, and development with determination and skill. 

For John and Tracy, art is not confined to a single medium or space. It is a way of life, a constant flow of inspiration that permeates every aspect of their existence. Whether tending to their lush garden, setting a beautiful table, putting brush to canvas, sculpting, designing interiors, or creating fashion, they approach each endeavor with the same level of passion and dedication.

 As parents of four sons, John and Tracy have built a life that is rich in creativity and family. Through PorterArtGuild.com, they invite others to share in the fruits of their artistic journey, offering a curated selection of mixed media works that showcase the depth and breadth of their talents. Each piece is a testament to the power of creativity and the enduring spirit of two individuals who have found their true calling in each other and in the world of art.
