Sharon Sandberg of Illinois received her B.F.A. from Grand Valley State University and her M.F.A. in Painting from the University of Michigan. She has also done post-degree work at de l'université d'Aix-Marseillein, in France. She currently teaches at Aquinas College in Grand Rapids. On her work, she writes: "For me, still life is a marriage of metaphor, arrangement and observation...In my paintings I strive for serene and lucid solutions to arrangement and color. I look for, and attempt to establish, relationships between very ordinary, often utilitarian objects, objects that have beautiful and functional shape, old objects, which seem to have a past".
