Darlene Hardenbrook's Profile
I grew up in Spokane WA. and have always loved the out of doors. Being an artist, that went well with the challenge of traveling to different areas and selling my work at street fairs and art shows in parks, etc. I have always enjoyed creating things and started at a very young age carving animals out of soap, knitting Barbie Doll clothes, and building tiny houses, complete with furniture, using cardboard and fabric inside of shoe boxes. I've sculpted with different clays for 39 years and finally settled on
polymer clay in 1989. I like the way this clay lends itself to detail, (I LOVE to work small). It's also very durable, lightweight, and moisture cannot harm it. You can
actually wash them off with warm water, and although I would not recommend it, I recently had a favorite piece survive both the washer and dryer, still pinned to my shirt!
I never get tired…
