Darlene Stevenson Hamblin – bio
I was born in Duchesne, Utah and have lived in Ogden most of my life. Our home is near the river and Ogden Canyon, with surroundings that have inspired many of my paintings. I have loved doing creative and art related activities since I was a small child. Some of my fondest memories are of having such a strong desire to draw, that I would draw on all the blank pages of my mom’s encyclopedia. As my six children were growing up, I would many times take a few minutes and do some sketching. Later when they were all in school I started doing more serious art work. I studied at Weber State and Utah State Universities and a home study course: “Famous Artists”. I love all forms of art and most subjects. I taught oil painting classes for eighteen years and have recently discovered the many versatile qualities of acrylics both on canvas and with collages.
Bert Hamblin bio-
I never proclaimed to be artistic, that was always left up to my wife and daughters, until a few years ago. Suddenly I found that I had a knack for putting lumps of wood together and turning them into beautiful pieces of
art that also function as pepper mills. And, it was fun! I started having fun with the element I knew the most about. I am 83 years old and have worked with wood for most of my life in construction. I managed
the lumber yard at a building material company for 13 years and am very familiar with the more common species of woods.
I am using woods that a few years ago, even though I had worked with wood all my life, I hadn't even heard of. I have never made anything that I enjoy more than pepper mills. It is really enjoyable to start out with plain blocks of wood that are different species, thicknesses, and colors, put them together and have them turn into a piece of beauty that will last for many years. These are pieces of art that you can be proud and hand down from generation to generation
I now have mills in all 50 states and several foreign countries: Canada, England, Australia, Malaysia, Sweden, Japan, Italy, France and Poland.
