Glasgow born Dronma went to Laurel Bank school in the city’s West End and then onto The Glasgow School of Art, where she graduated in the summer of 1969. Following her studies at Jordanhill College of Education and after a period of teaching, Dronma became the Art Director of the Glasgow Arts Centre.
Until April 2008 Dronma was a Lecturer at Forth Valley College. She now devotes her time fully to painting and became the Vice President of the Glasgow Society of Women Artists.
Her paintings have gained her a fine reputation amongst discerning buyers of contemporary Scottish Art, as a New Scottish Colourist. Her expressive landscapes are undoubtedly wild and windswept, but they also convey an inner tranquillity.
The work of Dronma has been exhibited all over the United Kingdom, and is held in private collection worldwide.
She says: I love the changing moods of light, colour and atmosphere, and I am fascinated with the vibrancy of change, in landscape, that point of change. The atmosphere of places I find heightens my senses, a feeling of being in the ‘now’ with the surrounding elemental forces, regardless of whether they are wild or calm. I respond to not only what I see but to the inner soul and to what I feel.
