Ian and Christine moved to Watton in March 2016 , they worked together creatively from their studios in Hertfordshire for 6 years prior to this.
Ian used his woodworking skills to create a range of hand made collectors houses which included a Tudor House which became his trademark for commissions. A children's “crazy
house” , Dutch Houses and shops completed his range.
Christine started to work in acrylics more extensively in the studios.She produced a range of canvases which were more experimental and proved popular.
By the time Christine had moved to the studios, she had already developed a large range of greetings cards that supported her design and illustration and painting experience.
Christine had also worked extensively in a publicity environment.
The acquisition of her trademark Jolly Holly® and the development of children's' stories led to the publication of an article in Hertfordshire Life. Kate Garner, narrator and musician
contacted Christine as result of this article. The collaborative musical story CD is now available and proved popular at the Dragonfly Gallery at Christmas.
