SMU Meadows Scool of the Arts, Mary Vernon Painting Prize

Education has been transformative twice in my life; first in engineering and now in the art of oil painting.
In May, 2018, I was honored to receive from the faculty of SMU Meadows School of the Arts:
Mary Vernon Painting Prize – Julie England
The Mary Vernon Painting Prize was established by donors in 2016 in honor of Vernon’s long, successful career as both an artist and professor at SMU. The award is presented annually to an art major with outstanding dedication to the craft of painting, as judged by faculty, and provides funds toward establishment of an art career.”
I am grateful to the SMU Art Faculty and especially painting Professors Mary Vernon and Barnaby Fitzgerald!
