SANDY ROOB, Artist
As a farmer’s daughter from northern Indiana, Sandy Roob grew up surrounded by interesting rural landscapes. Bucolic images of fields, intriguing clouds, water, and woods find their way into many of her paintings. Now living in Indianapolis, Roob gathers art inspiration during her walks and bike rides. She also enjoys painting mountains and beach scenes from vacations. Roob translates nature’s beauty onto canvas through her palette of rich earth tones, zesty shades of blue, green, and red, and lively brush strokes.
Her artistic journey started in high school and continued in college where she minored in Studio Arts at DePauw University. She spent a semester as an art intern with Young & Rubicam Advertising in New York City.
After college the communications major became an award winning television news reporter for WNDU, the South Bend NBC affiliate. Several years later she hosted “IU Update” that aired during televised IU Men’s basketball games.
She has studied painting at the Indianapolis Art Center (IAC) and has taken workshops and classes with numerous local artists. Roob also taught painting classes and Pop Up classes at the IAC.
Roob has exhibited work at the Indianapolis Art Center, Broad Ripple Art Fair, The Stutz, Zionsville’s Brick Street Art Walk, and Millersville Café Market. Solo shows include Orchard Park Church and North Central High School Art Gallery. Her work currently hangs in The Beauty Lounge, Carmel, IN.
Roob is married and has a son at Purdue and a daughter in high school.
