Sandra Duran Wilson is a fourth generation artist. Her Mother's relatives were artists and come from Mexico, Spain, and Italy. Sandra's early years were spent on the border of Mexico where the people, animals, landscape, drama of the religious rituals, and stories of the curanderas shaped her reality.
Sandra's father and his relatives were physicians and scientists and they nurtured her love of science. Making her paints and paper from materials found in Nature is a direct result of this passion.
This combination of art and experimentation led to the creation and collaboration of the art technique books that she co-writes.Image Transfer Workshop, Surface Treatment Workshop and the new Mixed Media Revolution take you from painting and transfers to composition and reinventing your art. She is currently working on a fourth book and continuing her experiments and painting explorations.
