Big news....I've just been informed that I have been accepted as a Signature member of the American Society of Marine Artists. This membership is an honor not given lightly and is sometimes a process of several submissions. The Fellows of the ASMA gather annually to review portfolios and invite successful applicants to join a select group of artists with Signature status. Those artist selected by the fellows are entitled to use ASMA after their name on artworks and in publications. The Society membership is a list of who's who in the painterly world of marine painters. I'm thrilled to be member of the Society and to be recognized after many long years in front of an easel. Here's a link to the ASMA website:
