Pencils rock! MPAS Awarded Status of Master Pencil Artist


The Pencil Art Society, a young society well on the way to becoming a force to be reckoned with, has a philosophy that totally struck home. The Society is just what the pencil art world needs: a strong dedicate voice lobbying the power, the beauty and the versatility of pencil art.
Member artists have a talent in abundance and I really could not miss the opportunity to  discover their pencil world.

The amazing news that followed was so very humbling and made all the "struggle moments" over the years so very worth while.







On the first of August, along with three other fantastic pencil artists Denise J. HowardKaren Hull and Wendy Thompson, we received wonderful news: The judges selected us as the first artists to receive Master Pencil Artist Status (MPAS) 
Woot woot woot!!!!


~ The jury has examined all information and portfolios submitted by those PAS members wishing to obtain Master Pencil Artist Status (MPAS).  I have great news for you!  The judges have granted you MPAS.  Congratulations from the Pencil Art Society! (...) ~ Pencil Artist Society

The happy dances that followed were memorable in their exuberance and had allin the studio giggling and jigging ... for days.
