Glasgow born, Dronma studied at Laurel Bank and then Glasgow School of Art, where she graduated in 1969. After studies at Jordanhill College of Education and a period of teaching, she became the Art Director of Glasgow Arts Centre.

Eventually, she moved to rural Stirlingshire while she brought up her family. Until April 2008 Dronma was a part-time lecturer at Forth Valley College. She now devotes her time fully to her painting and is President of the Glasgow Society of Women Artists (GSWA). She was awarded the Scottish Amicable Award in 2007, at the 125th Anniversary Exhibition.

Her paintings have gained her a fine reputation amongst discerning buyers of contemporary Scottish Art as a “New Scottish Colourist”.

Her expressive landscapes may be wild and windswept but they also gleam with an inner light. Her work has been exhibited all over the United Kingdom and is in private collections worldwide. In 2008 she took part in the Primavera Art Rotterdam and also exhibited in Vienna. Dronma’s work is also in a private collection in Dehli.


Her unusual name is her Tibetan Buddhist name, since becoming a Tibetan Buddhist in 1976. “I love the changing moods of light, colour, and atmosphere, and I am fascinated with the vibrancy of change, the point of ‘in-between”.

Island Blue Gallery is an art gallery and gift shop located at Baliscate, near Tobermory on the Isle of Mull. We have a beautiful, light space filled with works by many skillful Scottish artists ranging from the mysterious and tranquil sweeping landscapes of Garry Brander to the mythical and surreal fantastical worlds of Matylda Konecka. A lot of the prints we stock have a distinctly Scottish feel and truly capture the essence of Scotland's landscape and wildlife.
