Michelle S. Drummond a Jamaican expat, came to the United States in 1995 as an international student to pursue her education at St. Lawrence University in Upstate, New York. A former member of the Jamaica Women’s Hockey Team, Michelle has represented Jamaica in various events and internationally, since the age of fifteen (15). As a matter of fact, she was the first Jamaican national to have been offered an academic scholarship to study at the St. Lawrence University, where she could also represent the University through field hockey.
While pursuing a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Mathematics at St. Lawrence, she decided to explore fine arts as a creative outlet. After dabbling in the different offerings of fine arts, Michelle discovered that manipulating multicolored strings using glue and acrylic paint on canvas was a different and exciting take on expressing her creativity.
Her work has evolved over the years into creative expressions that exude a mélange of her experiences living here in the United States and the exuberance of the Jamaican culture she grew up in. She creates artwork that is thought provoking, leaving viewers to their own interpretation.
Michelle has also achieved a Masters in Project Management and established her own businesses, The Drummond Group, LLC and DStrings, LLC.
