Michelle Meyers

Our latest Welcome To Sanford Artist of the Week is Michelle Meyers, a multi-faceted artist, whose styles, subjects, surfaces and selections of mediums cover an unbelievably wide range. Michelle likes to describe her approach as “a minimalist style and a love for clean lines.” She has won over 40 awards and honors in her career for her art, photography and graphic design. When it comes to painting and sketching, Michelle frequently works with watercolors, acrylics and pen & ink. Flowers and floral arrangements are a common subject for Michelle. She’s also not averse to incorporating other substances like sawdust into her acrylic works, to add a degree of texture to their appearance.

In addition to painting, Michelle’s graphic talents often lead to hired engagements such as hand-lettering and wedding signs. Her visual artistry is also evident in her jewelry and embroidery. Michelle’s skills also extend to web design work. Michelle created a website for the Carolina Trace Volunteer Fire Department, among other clients.

Michelle is the September Featured Artist of the Month at Karma Boutique & Coffee Bar on Wicker Street in downtown Sanford. Throughout the month, her original artwork, prints and handmade jewelry will be on display and available for purchase. There is a reception in Michelle’s honor on Saturday afternoon, September 7, from 4-to-6pm. You can learn more about the event at this Facebook link.

Michelle’s artwork is also available for viewing and purchase at her Etsy store. You can also see a wide range of her works at Michelle’s Facebook page as well.
