My B.S. Degree in art, from the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point, gave me a start in my career in art.
After 22 years as a studio potter, a strong current took me down a new stream, which led to the OCEAN. As an experienced scuba diver and snorkeler, I couldn't resist capturing the colorful underwater world on paper and also BATIKS on SILK. Hence, I started www.oceandudes.com with a colorful collection of OCEAN FISH prints, notecards and originals.
www.cafepress.com/suedudabatiks offers my sea life designs on many APPAREL and GIFT products! You'll also find that I've branched out, having been influenced by my surroundings.
TROPICAL designs such as parrots, iguanas, sailboats and palm trees transpired, due to my travel ventures.
My FRESHWATER FISH batiks are due to my living in northern Wisconsin and my husband suggesting I create our popular local fish. Bluegills, walleyes, muskellunge, perch, crappies and bass offer fabulous color and intricate patterns just like the ocean fish do.
One of my bluegill batiks was selected by the STATE of WISCONSIN to promote the "Hook into Healthy Fish" program. T-shirts, mugs and posters were distributed over 9 states.
My Bluegills 3 design is an AWARD WINNING batik from the Mantio Art Show!
NICOLET COLLEGE, Rhinelander, WI selected my KAYAK design to promote their Outdoor Education Series on apparel.
As a fiddler in a string band, I've been inspired to create MUSIC batiks as well. My MUSICAL INSTRUMENT designs have become my most popular designs on my www.cafepress.com/suedudabatiks website, where Sue Duda Batiks offers gorgeous ocean fish, tropical, freshwater fish, nature, outdoor and music designs!
My Musical Instruments design WON the ART CONTEST for the Hiawatha Music Festival in 2000 and was used on T-shirts and posters.
My art has been published, printed, collected and offered in galleries and too many website to mention here.
