Dru is a self-taught American artist who specializes in creating contemporary fantasy collage art, abstract alcohol ink art and mandala art for the licensing industry for puzzles, greeting cards, journals, stationery, wall art, etc. 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. 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 her work was published in “Photographers Forum” in 1991. Since then, she has continued displaying her artwork nationally. 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. She currently lives and works in a small rural town on the western slope of the Colorado Rocky Mountains. When not in her studio, Dru enjoys spending time in Glenwood Springs, Aspen or Telluride, and any where along the 55th Parallel chasing the Northern Lights.
