Chris died peacefully at home on Tuesday 29 October 2013 after a long illness which sadly became unstoppable during her final six months. Despite this, she produced some amazing sketches while we were in the Arctic on Svalbard in June 2013 (see the Gallery), but she ran out of time for turning them into full-scale paintings. She was an inspiration to all who knew her, not only because of her painting, textile work, poetry, film-making and yoga teaching, but also because she was a wonderfully sunny human being with a bottomless well of creative ideas. She will be dreadfully missed, but she made a major contribution to the happiness of everyone around her.
