Dru is a self-taught American artist who specializes in contemporary Mandala and abstract ink paintings. Inspired by the Northern Lights, her paintings reflect her love of bright, brilliant colors found in nature and science. Dru was born In Indianapolis, IN. Having grown up in a creative family, her love for art started at an early age and continued through her adolescence years, where she would draw endlessly as it was her favorite pass time. When she entered high school, she took art classes to hone her skills and after graduating, she joined the Air Force where she continued pursuing her art, entering many competitions and winning many awards. During her college years she continued entering competitions in the international arena receiving awards for color photography and being published in “Photographers Forum” in 1991. Since then, she has continued displaying her artwork nationally through 2020. As a self-taught artist, Dru consistently participates in art courses and workshops to further her knowledge and technique as an artist. Her medium of choice is alcohol ink because she loves the beautiful wispy, ethereal threads the ink creates. Dru is currently represented by Easton Art Gallery in Delray Beach, FL and also exhibits her work locally through art guilds and city/county government art programs. She currently lives and works in Las Vegas, NV. When not in her studio, Dru enjoys spending time in Colorado, and anywhere along the 55th Parallel chasing the Northern Lights.
