quotes from feature article in local newspapers (PDF, HTML):

"Sharon really helped us out in a pinch with a very high end wine tasting and dinner," said Sally Allred, the event director for Niebaum-Coppola Winery in Napa. "Her photos were great; she really knew how to capture the feeling of the evening."
Paul Eisenberg, owner of Poppy Fabrics in Oakland and a regular client of the gallery, shares a similar opinion of Collier's work: "If you're a wine drinker, like I am, going back to the places where those wines came from; the earth and the vineyards are so beautiful and she captures that like no one else does, you can almost feel the sunshine in the vines."
