Solbert was born in Washington, D.C. and grew up in Rochester, New York Her father was Oscar Nathaniel Solbert, a Swedish immigrant who became a general in the United States Army, serving in both World War I and World War II and working as an executive at the Eastman Kodak Company before becoming the first director of the George Eastman House International Museum of Photography and Film. During his early military career, Oscar Solbert met and married Elizabeth Abernaty. Their daughter was given the name "Romaine," after an aunt, but that name was shortened to "Ronni."
Solbert attended Vassar College, graduating with honors in 1946, and continued her studies at Cranbrook Academy of Art in Michigan, were she earned an M.F.A. in 1948.
After graduating from Cranbrook, Solbert worked in Stockholm, Sweden, where she did translating and broadcasting work for the International Red Cross. Thereafter she taught children painting and sculpture at University of Rochester. She also studied and worked in Robert Blackburn's Graphic Workshop in New York City. She worked in India with support of the Fulbright Program. (Merrill was also a Fulbright scholar in India.) Solbert returned to New York to pursue a career in art and illustration. In 1959, the Museum of Modern Art featured Solbert's paintings in one of the museum's "New Talent" exhibitions.
In New York, Solbert met Merrill (who, coincidentally, had also grown up near Rochester). The two became friends and, eventually, partners. While in New York, the couple were active in the community. In 1970, they moved to Vermont. Merrill died of cancer in 2012. Solbert died in Randolph, Vermont on June 9, 2022, at the age of 96.
While predominantly known as an illustrator, Solbert has also worked as an author, editor, photographer, and created works of fine art. Her published work includes:
