Drina Fried was born and raised in Buffalo, New York. After receiving her doctorate in counseling
psychology and education from the Univ.Of the Pacific (UOP), she moved to central California and worked
in that field for 31 years. As do most artists when not otherwise working, she began as a hobbyist artist. As
such, she won many competitions and began being commissioned to make art for others. In 2005 she
became a professional artist, and in 2008 moved to Nevada with her husband. Follow this Link to learn
about this mixed media contemporary niche: Embellished Fabric Collage. Watermedia pieces are more
traditionally executed than her signature collages.
