Shelby Meyers

My name is Shelby Meyer and I am a printmaker! I am currently a double major in Art Education and Studio Art: Printmaking at South Dakota State University. Aside from school, I am also the Art Factory Instructor, as well as, the administrative assistant at the Brookings Arts Council. I have always been drawn to art because of how it makes me feel. To be able to express myself through art is truly a gift, one that I look forward to sharing with others as I move into my career as an Art Educator.
