"So, different people will see different things in each piece," she said.

Drew paints using acrylics from her Point Washington home studio. She points out that she is still in her "infancy stage" as an artist and she will grow into feeling comfortable using other mediums. But for now, acrylics is where she feels most comfortable.

"They're flexible," she explains.

Whether she is capturing the beauty of South Walton or something else, her hybrid style combines a touch of the abstract with a splash of impressionism. Drew describes the result as “soft, thoughtful glimpses into the heart of nature.”

Her work was most recently featured in the Cultural Art Alliance’s A+ Top of the Class exhibit and Hidden Lantern’s Back to Nature show, where Drew’s “Trees of Cape San Blas” was awarded an honorable mention.

During the month of January, Drew is the featured artist at Coastal Branch Library, which is her first one-woman show. The public is invited to visit and view work at the library during its normal business hours.

Drew plans to keep growing and in five years, she sees herself being in the position of an encourager instead of an encouragee.
