Carole started working with polymer clay almost by accident. She and her daughter Cathryn were house cleaning and they discovered some craft supplies which included some polymer clay. Well… not much cleaning got done that day after this discovery!
It all started with a little bird, Wort the Worry bird. He was made to cheer up a friend who was going through a really tough time. Carole told her Wort would help her with all her woes. Everyone who saw this little bird Wort: aka the blue bird of happiness HAD to have one as well! Then Wort was joined by his cousin LUCKY DUCKY. Lucky was made for the sole purpose to raise funds for the MS (Multiple Sclerosis) Society.
Carole Was diagnosed with MS in 2003, she has found that working with the clay is great occupational therapy and cognitive therapy to help with the hand and muscle cramps that come with her illness.
She has been working with polymer ever since her first encounter with it. She has since authored tutorials for Polymer Café, Her first was Bambooya beads April 2012 and her latest tutorial is Mobious Mass October 2013 issue.
Carole never gets bored with the possibilities of polymer clay and feels “Compelled” to keep working with this medium because her well of ideas never run out!
