Drury studied at Digby Hoets' studio, Halfway House from 1987 to1993. In 1991 he attended lectures and workshops with John Gibson in South Africa. In 1992 he attended a John Maltby course in Aberystwyth, Wales. He has attended other courses, both locally and overseas.
He has won numerous awards and has work in various public and private collections in South Africa and abroad as well as in the permanent Corobrik Collection at the Pretoria Art Museum.
Exploring creativity and the magic of clay inspire him. The vessel's capacity in human service ( tableware and seagoing vessels - both being containers) stimulates his interest albeit from a non functional art based perspective. He leans towards a casual and free approach in decoration being much influenced by the abstract expressionist movement. The work of Alison Britton, Maltby, Sandy Brown, Hans Coper and Voulkos excite and stimulate him.
