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.
*Framed original piece at left  was stolen from the Canyon Ranch Spa
Artwalk between the Venetian and the Palazzo in Las Vegas.   If you ever
hear of or see this embellished fabric collage, I would VERY MUCH  
appreciate your calling (661)343-1639 with information leading to its
recovery. Reward and THANK YOU!
