Zan Lee DuRoy

I have had a mad desire to create since I was about 5yrs old when I started making detailed drawings of the  flowers in my mothers garden with hand me down crayons on scraps of any paper I could find. My family did not have the means for proper art supplies growing up which further enhanced my creativity, using found objects, old magazines, scraps of fabric to express myself. As I got older, I learned to sew and often pulled together strange amalgams of wearable art from thrift store finds of clothes and jewelry during my young adult years, exemplifying the DYI punk and goth fashion of my peers. I studied art history and read copious amounts of material about all kinds of artists seeking to find my own style as I grew older. After two mariages and a prolonged struggle to find myself again, I have finally found my true artistic voice in painting. It is LOUD and it wants to be HEARD! For the last 9 months, I have been exploring different painting medium and techniques, teaching myself as I go along, and have managed to put together a couple studio showings at Blue Star Arts Complex and one larger opening and exhibit Maxwell Gallery in the Las Vegas Arts District. Moving forward, I have been accepted as one of the exhibiting artists in the upcoming Pancakes and Booze Pop up Art Show at Blue Star in September and have booked a month long exhibit at Creative Eye Gallery for September of 2023.
