RMSBA and ASBA

The Rocky Mountain Society of Botanical Artists was founded in 1997 as the first regional chapter of the American Society of Botanical Artists (ASBA). The Society is open to all artists interested in preserving and growing the tradition of botanical art.

I encourage all the students of the Botanical Illustration Program join this society where you get wonderful support and camaraderie from fellow artists.
When you join RMSBA you will automatically become a member of ASBA with their membership benefits. ASBA has over 1200 members from 26 different countries.
The Botanical Artist – The Journal of the American Society of Botanical Artsts featured the Denver Botanical Illustration program in their September Issue. This BI-blog was also featured in the same issue’s Cyber Corner – we feel so honored. You can see the article by clicking here.
