Profile Information

About Me:
Drue Kataoka is a modern artist based in Palo Alto, CA. Her artistic vocabulary incorporates both the refined techniques of her ancient Zen art form and cutting-edge conceptual innovations inspired by life in Silicon Valley. She creates expressive, experiential works of art that convey highly nuanced products and ideas or uniquely powerful portraits. Her clients are leading companies, organizations and individuals in Silicon Valley and beyond. Some of her projects have been covered by CNN, ABC, CBS, and NBC affiliates, and in print by San Jose Mercury News, San Francisco Chronicle, Entrepreneur Magazine, CNET and many others. Drue’s non-private commissions include: cover art for Wynton Marsalis’ album A Fiddler’s Tale (SONY/Columbia), original estate wine labels for Au Bon Climat, over 29 commemorative prints, and numerous high-profile projects for clients like Nissan, Cisco, SUN Microsystems, Nordstrom, Fenwick & West LLP, The Koret Foundation, The Boys & Girls Clubs of America, Stanford University and the Hoover Institution. Drue recently participated in the first zero-gravity art exhibition in space at the International Space Station. Through her art, she has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for numerous charitable organizations. In 2001, Drue established the endowed Rotary Foundation Drue Kataoka Arts Scholarship. She co-moderates a blog called ValleyZen with Bill Fenwick.
