Duda is a professional artist specializing in nature-inspired abstract expressionistic paintings on canvas, paper and wood panel. Her preferred medium is acrylic because of its fast-drying capability. Duda has experienced System Exertion Intolerance Disease for the past twenty-five years; because of the nature of her disease, Duda works very quickly because she never knows how long she will be able to work or when she will be able to return to her studio. Rather than allow her illness to define her career, Duda’s work is fueled by it. The unpredictability of her symptoms have fostered a keen awareness of the sights, sounds and smells of her surroundings and a sharp memory that can cling to small details until the next opportunity Duda has to return to her studio. Duda has exhibited work at solo shows in Canada and the U.S. She has taught private art lessons for both children and adults and received multiple awards, including the Bell Ringer Award for outstanding service in hosting and instructing children's art workshop and judging artwork entries.
