The Society of Animal Artists

I found out last week, just before I left town, that I have been juried in as a “Signature member” of the Society of Animal Artists. Yes I have been a member in the society for a couple years now but as an “Associate” member. I am very honored to be part of the Society of Animal Artists as a “Signature member,” I join an extremely prestigious and talented list of some of the WORLD'S best artists.

The Society of Animal Artists is an association of animal and wildlife painters and sculptors. Founded in 1960, the Society is devoted to promoting excellence in the portrayal of the creatures sharing our planet, and to the education of the public through its informative art seminars, lectures and teaching demonstrations. Some of the finest animal artists from the United States, Canada, Europe, Africa, Japan, and Australia are represented in the Society's membership.

Over the past 40 years the work created by these artists has established new standards of artistic excellence and respect, helping animal and wildlife art to achieve a place of honor in the field of fine art.

Thank you to the board members and my fellow artists who have decided to include me as part of this very talented organization!

There's no one more deserving of such a prestigious honor. I feel like I should either call you Robert the Great!
