IDAL is a group of diverse artisans from all over the world who share a passion for the decorative arts. This year, IDAL is kicking off a campaign that will allow members to get to know each other a little better. #IamIDAL will put a name with a face and give some background information on the artisan featured. Beginning with chapter presidents and then the board, IamIDAL will feature members and share the journey that led us to find IDAL!
Follow the stories as they are published on IDAL's FaceBook page, and other social media. Please join in the journey. Click Here to email for more information.
Profile of Carolina Creative Artisans President, Michelle Byrd.
IDAL How long have you been in business?
MB 12 years.
IDAL What inspires you?
MB Nature! I could spend hours studying the details of the sky, beach, stones, plants, etc.
IDAL What drew you to SALI/IDAL?
MB I took a faux finish class with Donna Mabry in Atlanta and she encouraged us to join SALI. It was the best way to learn and network with other artists. We could attend a convention, get a magazine, and save on insurance. I never could have imagined that one day I would be president of a chapter!
IDAL Tell us something few people know about you.
MB My degree is in secretarial science.
