Future Superfund Site
 22" x 28", Acrylic on Canvas

Welcome to Drue E. Roberts' website. The following is a collection of my paintings and drawings ranging from early works in the late 1990's to recently completed works. The site is divided into three sections: Current Artworks, Artworks and Nature.  

The Artworks section is loosely divided into themes inspired by nature and events that have made an impression on me. Many of these works have been displayed in galleries in Ohio and New Mexico. In many cases, the originals are for sale. Please inquire about purchasing originals at the email below.

The Nature section is mainly inspired by my family. These works were created for my children's nurseries. Most of the pieces in this section are brightly colored with simple themes to act as decorative pieces.

Prints are available in the piece's original size, and if available, 16" x 20" and 8" x 10". Each print is hand signed and numbered by the artist. Please click on any picture for a larger, more detailed viewing.

About The Artist

I taught myself to draw and paint in my spare time. I began with colored pencils and eventually graduated to acrylic paints. With the acrylics, I've developed a unique style of layering paint using bold colors and pronounced light and shadows to produce pieces that speak for me on a very personal level.

My experience as a geologist dealing with environmental contamination has inspired much of my work. And you may notice influences ranging from the murals of Diego Rivera, the sparseness of Edward Hopper and the dinosaurs of William Stout.  I spent countless hours as a kid copying the dinosaurs out of William Stout's book "Dinosaurs" and those hours sprawled on the floor have evolved into my current works. I hope you enjoy looking at my paintings as much as I enjoyed creating them.
