Dallas based portrait and fine art photographer, Colleen G. Drew, takes an individual approach to each of her works. She strives to create images that reveal the spirit of each of her subjects. She portrays each of her subjects with an artistic style and personal intuition.
Colleen’s love of photography began while on a trip to the former Soviet Union in 1982. Her passion for the art was ignited and grew over the years. After studying photography at the State University of New York at Purchase, with working commissioned artists, she went into business with her sister, Maureen. Together they had a successful studio in the beautiful Hudson River Valley in New York State, where Maureen is still running the studio in the town of Rhinebeck, New York.
In the summer of 2002, Colleen and her family relocated to Highland Village, Texas where she is continuing to pursue her passion for the art of photography. She has returned to creating original pieces of hand painted photographs and is now creating photo encaustics, the art of using encaustic medium with her photography. She is also a member of the Visual Art League of Lewisville where she is currently serving as Director, and a member of the Center for Photography of Woodstock in New York. Her favorite subjects to capture are architecture, landscapes, nature, and slices of life.
