Sandra Dueker



I have been painting on and off for about thirty years. Generally speaking, I work in acrylics and experiment using pastels too.  Watercolors are another avenue I have been exploring. My influences are Picasso, Basquiat, Matisse, Baselitz, and Auerbach.

About My Work:

I am a painter who believes the process matters. The process of painting and the act of creating are what matter to me. The end result, the finished painting, is not consequential. I may begin with an idea in my mind as to where I want to start a painting, but that is really just the jumping off point to wherever the process takes me.
