Sandra Duran Wilson


About the Author

Sandra Duran Wilson comes from a family of artists and scientists. She grew up in a world where all things were possible in her imagination. It was a world where she could look through the microscope in her father's office and paint what she saw. Her early years were spent on the border of Mexico where the people, animals, landscape, music, culture and the stories of the curanderos shaped her reality. Years later she would return frequently to Mexico and South America to absorb the culture, traditions and art. Her spirituality combined with her scientific studies directed her work from realism to abstraction.

Her work is influenced by scientific concepts in physics, chemistry and biology. The pure fun of exploring what paint can do and her natural curiosity keeps the work fresh and lively. She is continually exploring new surfaces, materials and techniques. Her work is represented in galleries in the U.S. and Australia and is found in corporate, civic and educational institutions and private collections globally.

She experiments, paints, writes and teaches at her studio in Santa Fe, New Mexico. She also teaches around the U.S., Europe and Australia. She is the author of six art technique books and several DVDs, and her work has been featured in numerous books and magazines. Visit her website at
