Sandy Meirovitz Artist ProfileProfile of a Sibley artist.
By: Jack Schuleman, Sibley Scribe
There are many facets to being an artist as a career; some people stay being visual artists, making paints and sculptures, while others go a different route: being a designer. Sandy Meirovitz follows the other path. Trading lofted ceilings and exposed pipes for a drawing tablet and Photoshop, she embraces the steadfast field of print design. Everybody always needs a poster, a t-shirt, or a flier, and that’s where she fits in. In her own words, “I try to get all the practice I can get, whatever it is. As long as somebody tells me what they want their thing to be, I can make it.” If you’ve seen a poster at school that wasn’t made with a marker and a big sheet of paper, or a t-shirt that wasn’t just words, chances are Sandy put pen to tablet and acted as an idea printer. Sandy’s style seems to follow something I like to call “simple realism,” taking the basic, recognizable shapes of an object intact, while leaving its more intricate forms to rest, keeping the overall aesthetic simple but effective. She also does “traditional” paintings, capturing a person’s being and relationship to her in glossy acrylic. Sandy’s going to the University of Minnesota to study graphic design, ensuring that she’ll be one to keep an eye out for in the future.
