This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following information is from Ann Hardie of The Eldridge Hardie Studio:

In August, 2002, Stackpole books is publishing The Painting of Eldridge Hardie-Art of a Life in Sport, the first book devoted exclusively to the artist's work.

For the sportsman art collector who is deeply enriched by his days in the field or on the water, authenticity of mood in a painting is crucial.  The quarry, the texture of the landscape, the weather, light, and season, the people and dogs, the boats all are familiar and treasured elements.  Eldridge Hardie's own bird hunting and fly fishing pursuits, which have taken him from Canada to the southernmost tip of South America, to Scotland and all across this country, are joined with his desire to make sporting moments live in his pictures.

He draws on his formal training, a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Painting from Washington University's School of Fine Arts in St. Louis, and his thirty-five years as a working artist to communicate his vision.  His mediums are both oil and watercolor.

In February 2000, The National Bird Dog Museum opened a one-man retrospective show titled The Art of Eldridge Hardie-A Celebration of the Sporting Tradition. Also, The National Museum of Wildlife Art, the Gilcrease Museum, the American Museum of Fly Fishing, and the Artists of America Show have included Hardie's work in invitational exhibits.

Recently named the Atlantic Salmon Federation Artist of the Year, Hardie is a long-time supporter of sportsmen's organizations.  He has been the Trout Unlimited Artist of the Year and the National Wild Turkey Federation Sponsor Artist, and his designs have been chosen for the Texas Wild Turkey and Quail Stamps.  His work appears regularly in Gray's Sporting Journal, Fly Fishing in Saltwaters, Sporting Classics, and Pointing Dog Journal.

His career has been profiled in Wildlife Art News, and Southwest Art. He has illustrated numerous books, most recently José Ortega y Gasset's classic Meditations on Hunting and Michael McIntosh's Shotguns & Shooting, and he has painted covers for two Roderick Haig-Brown books.

Eldridge Hardie carries on the special heritage of artists such as Homer, Frost, Pleissner, Benson, and Ripley, who intimately knew outdoor sport.
