The Indigo Arts website has remained active during the widespread shutdowns due to the COVID-19 virus.  We have had to limit our activities since the March 23rd "Stay at Home" order in Philadelphia.  Under current rules I have been able to resume most operations but still must limit visitors to the gallery, by appointment only.   I am monitoring orders and responding to inquiries.  I am now able to pack and ship most orders within a few days.   Please stay safe!

Sandra Dooley

About the Artist

Santa Fe, Cuba, born 1964
A self-taught artist, Sandra Dooley began to paint at 36. Her paintings reflect the intimate moments in Cuban daily life that center on family friends, pets and even fantasy scenes. Her compositions, influenced by great 20th century artists, often feature women distinguished by their thoughtful and reflective expressions.

Dooley has also explored mixed media techniques using upcycled materials. Recycling old materials is essential in Cuba; Dooley grew up watching her mother and grandmother bring new life to used objects by adding recycled elements. Using the memories of mother and grandmother as inspiration, Dooley has created collages that incorporate recycled fabric, burlap sequins, lace, buttons to add texture and oil paint to create bright splashes of color.

Dooley has been exhibiting her works since 2000, in Cuba, Canada, Germany and the United States.
