Diane Melms - SAQA Professional Artist Membership

'Chroma Cross' by Diane Melms
SAQA has two membership levels, one for those of us who want to be part of a great network of fiber art enthusiasts, and another for those of us who are serious about approaching art as a professional. If you consider yourself a professional artist you might consider becoming a Professional Artist Member of SAQA. PAM membership is for serious artists who have built a record of activity showing a commitment to their artwork. A committee reviews membership qualifications and mentors can advise you in the preparation of your application materials.

DianeMelms recently went through this process and has now been accepted as a Professional Artist Member of SAQA. She has been working up to this for a few years now, preparing a consistent body of work, creating a website, submitting work for exhibits and publications, and applying for artist grants. SAQA mentors were a big help and she would recommend seeking their advice when you think you are ready. Check out the membership page on the SAQA website for more details and a description of benefits.  

Congratulations, Diane!
