Welcome to Artisan’s website!
Our website is an extension and reflection of what Artisan is as a company. We began on Canyon Road in Santa Fe in 1975. The current four owners all began as retail clerks and have worked together for over 20 years. We have two retail stores in Santa Fe and Albuquerque that have employees who are mostly artists dedicated to their art and helping you with yours. Our website is competitively priced with other internet art material sites from much larger companies. Please visit our stores in Santa Fe or Albuquerque, call or click, and allow us an opportunity to earn your business.
Prices so low, they’re available online only. Our online store is also just a button away (red links on right). Please note that, like most online stores, Artisan online pricing is different than in-store pricing. Online you do all the work and the order is filled, so prices are less than in-store. All purchases are shipped to you directly.

Meet Peter Grab.
Carrying forth the tradition set by the School of Taos during the early part of the Twentieth Century, his art captures with economy of brush strokes the special light and warmth of the adobes and landscapes in the high desert of mountainous New Mexico.
