Dayle Sundberg is a professional artist who graduated in 2003 with a B.F.A. Art/Sculpture Specialization at The University of South Dakota in Vermillion, SD. Her past sculptures have utilized the female form as a powerful expression of art. With the goal of her art creating a dialog between the viewers; encourage them to talk about their trials, tribulations, and stressors; illness, abuse, anger, and personal loss.
In contrast to Sundberg’s figurative works, the ‘Turmoil’ series takes on personal and societal conflicts and struggles using found objects. Her current goal is to combine figurative works with found items and mixed media while pursuing a direction that exploits the conflicts between the body and the items that either infringe upon it or harmonize with it.
Dayle currently lives in Gettysburg, South Dakota.

Deyanira was born in the Dominican Republic on the island of Hispaniola. The colors of her childhood - the dresses her mother and grandmother wore, the exotic flowers and fruits, the mountains and the ocean - opened her eyes to color. The sounds and smells of the people around her awakened her sense of belonging.
She wanted to create but didn't have any supplies. She would find colored pencils discarded on the sidewalk of a wealthy home and keep them as treasures. Now as she mixes her paints, the smell awakens her soul. The first stroke brings a discovery that turns to pure joy as she sees it transform into a familiar face, a memory.
