Like many naturally gifted artists, Drew began creating art as a child. Encouraged by artistic parents, He took drawing, painting, and piano lessons during his home-school years and eventually launched his fine art career at the age of 17, when he was accepted into his first art gallery in San Luis Obispo.
Since then, he has continued showing in and around San Luis Obispo and was voted as New Times "best visual artist" 2015.
Drew approached a local gallery in San Luis Obispo to showcase his work, and within 24 hours, sold 4 painting before they were even hung on the walls.
The rest is history... Drew showcased his local landmark series at the gallery for several years, selling both originals and creating custom pieces for the galleries clients.
