This biography from the Archives of AskART:

The only son of an RCAF pilot, David Drum,  when the war ended, moved with his family to Toronto where his father began a career in printing and lithography.  In l954 his father built him a studio and taught him oil painting techniques.  In l96l, at the age of 17, he won the Canadian National Exhibition mural competition.  By then he was working for several Toronto companies illustrating their catalogues while studying under the guidance of his art teacher, Alex Fraser of Gordon Graydon Secondary School. 

Summers were spent landscape painting at his uncle's Gatineau cottage.  A misplaced application to the Ontario College of Art in l963 led to his enrollment in the anatomy and human dissection courses at the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College, which resulted in a ten-year career as a medical illustrator.  He graduated as a doctor of chiropractic in 1967. 

From l975-1985, he maintained a studio in Manhattan, painting abstract expressionist canvases while dealing in 19th century art.  In 1986, he returned to Toronto and established a studio-gallery in Cabbagetown.  He studied impressionist techniques while making frequent trips to Paris and Normandy with his wife, Barbara Vance, who was fluent in French. 

He is represented in private and corporate collections throughout North America with frequent creations for the sets of the film industry. He has a studio-gallery in crystal Beach near Niagara Falls.
