Amy Sacksteder

Amy Sacksteder's artwork is rooted in painting and drawing, but also delves into installation and time-based media. Her work, which engages transience - often using landscape and natural imagery - has been sited on contemporary art websites, published in journals such as New American Paintings and has been featured in solo and group exhibitions nationally and internationally. She has attended artist residencies in Illinois, Newfoundland, Southern France, Philadelphia, Budapest and Reykjavik.

She and artist Nicole Pietrantoni make up Island Projects, a two-person collaborative team, who met and began working together in Iceland and convene periodically to create site-specific installations. Amy Sacksteder received her BA in English from the University of Dayton in 2001 and received her MFA in painting from Northern Illinois University in 2004. She lives and works in Ypsilanti, Michigan, where she is an Associate Professor of Art at Eastern Michigan University.
