More about executive director of Craigardan, Michele Drozd:
Michele received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Ceramics from the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University and worked under various artists including Petras Vaskys and Laszlo Fekete studying design, mold making, and sculpture. She spent six years producing sculptural and architectural tile with tile-maker Marie Baron in Philadelphia, PA and Albuquerque, NM before traveling the world and finding her home in the Adirondack Mountains of New York. Michele became intensely interested in entrepreneurialism, the revitalization of small rural towns, food and agriculture, art, education and historic preservation – and the connections between them. Three businesses and three nonprofits later, she is thrilled to now serve as executive director of such an important and timely organization. Michele is the co-founder of Craigardan.
