Chrissie came from an artistic background. Encouraged by her father, a talented amateur artist, she attended a pre-foundation course at Harrow Art School in her early teen years but, much to her regret, did not continue and left at just 16. In 2006 Chrissie undertook a Foundation course in Art and Design. She exhibits her work whenever she is able and has exhibited at The Yarrow Gallery in Oundle and The Arts Centre at Stamford.

With art, you never stop learning.
