Cris has always painted, and although denied Art School in the sixties, has always been involved with some form of art, including pottery, woodcarving, and batik. Lived in Germany from 1965-1981. Worked as a merchandiser/ buyer until retirement in 2006.

Joined sculpture group, and spent 2 1/2 days a week sculpting, and painting on the remaining days. Attended classes/ courses with Hugh Webster, Belinda King, and Hugo Grenville. Until recently, she used metal resins, and waste moulds but after having one of her clay pieces cast in Bronze she learnt the process of lost wax casting, with instruction from Lawrence Edwards Foundry at Butley and working with them, produced works of her own in Bronze.
