Dru was born In Indianapolis, IN. Having grown up in an artistic family, her love for art started at an early age when she saw her Dad drawing cartoons. During her adolescence years, she would draw endlessly as it was her favorite pass time. When she entered high school, she took art classes to hone her skills. After high school, she joined the US Air Force and found an outlet to pursue her art by entering military art competitions and secured several 1st Place and Honorable Mention awards throughout her military career. After completing her military service, Dru opted to get an engineering degree. During her college years, she entered a Photographers Forum Magazine competition for college students and was awarded Honorable Mention for color photography. Her work was then published in the “Photographers Forum Best of College Photography Annual 1991”. Being a self-taught artist has led Dru to consistently take 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 threads the ink creates. Dru lives and works in Las Vegas, NV. When not in her studio, she enjoys spending time in Southern California, Southwest Colorado, and anywhere along the 55th Parallel chasing the Northern Lights.
