Chance Yarbrough is an outdoorsman, Texan, and sporting artist who has made a career out of combining his love for art and nature. His career got started in a fly shop in Rockport, where he decorated the store’s blackboard with beautiful chalk drawings of coastal fish when he wasn’t tying flies or interacting with customers. His work caught the eye of a regular shop visitor, venerated Texas sporting artist Herb Booth. Herb encouraged Chance to follow his muse, and took him under his wing. Thanks to his mentor’s encouragement, Chance took the leap into the life of a full-time artist and has never looked back. Now he’s considered one of the best Texas sporting artists working today, with commissions backed up for years.
