Chrissie qualified as a Technical Illustrator from Blackpool College of Art and Technology in 1978 leading to a career working as an Illustrator in Derbyshire. Her granddad, father and uncle were art teachers and artists and her father was an enormous influence both in developing her love of nature and art. She has had work published and also displayed at the RHS at Chelsea.
Chrissie later taught art classes for the WEA to adults in venues across Derbyshire. In 2016 she moved to Isle of Man to be nearer to family and is very excited to produce artwork inspired by the Island. Having worked in many mediums throughout her career, currently she is producing work in inks and pencil with two exhibitions planned later this year.
