Sharon Strasburg is a printmaker best known for her sensitive and richly luminous monotypes that are serene meditations on landscape. She draws inspiration from her beloved childhood farm on the vast prairies of South Dakota, her current Colorado home at the foothills of the Rocky Mountains and her extensive travels across America.
Always exploring the innovative possibilities of printmaking, Strasburg is currently laser cutting her works on paper into organic shapes that are reassembled to create complex constructions that blend abstracted map and landscape imagery invoking both journey and place.
Sharon holds a BFA from the University of South Dakota and an MFA from Tyler School of Art at Temple University where she studied at their campuses in Rome, Italy and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She has exhibited in numerous group and solo shows with work in the collections of the Kirkland Museum of Fine & Decorative Arts in Denver, Colorado and Museo Aeronautico in Rome, Italy as well as corporate and private collections in 20 states. She has received over a dozen best of show, best of printmaking, and merit awards at juried fine art festivals around the United States.
Strasburg currently lives in Denver, Colorado where she has her studio and is an affiliate professor at Regis University.
