Christine Haworth was born in Blackburn in Lancashire, England and has been drawing and painting since early childhood.

After graduating with a degree in illustration Christine started her career as a freelance illustrator and a figurative artist. She presented her work at many exhibitions in the late 70's and 80's and received excellent reviews.

By the early 90's Christine had become an established artist and was selected to design the Isle of Man Christmas Stamp in 1993. Soon after the success of this project Christine made the decision to branch out into licensing her designs under the Crisalis Brand. These have been licensed in many forms including collectable figurines, greeting cards, dolls, cross- stitch, de-coupage, mugs and collectors plates.

Christine Haworth's Design range includes Paintbox Poppets, Faerie Poppets, Crisalis Classics, Meadow Cottage Bears, Dream Tide, Pigling the Pog and her very latest edition Angel Whispers. Christine's subjects are imaginative and nostalgic. She has also had the privilege to design the costumes for the Covent Garden Royal Ballet's 'Cinderella' choreography by Sir Fredrick Ashton which was staged in December 2003.

Crisalis Collectors Club Ltd

Christine is very much in the fore with her own on-line website promoting her licensed products. The Crisalis Collectors Club has been selling her licensed artwork for some 6 years to a world-wide market, growing each year by 20% in turnover. Christine says 'I really enjoy being in contact with the 'end user' and listening to all the very positive comments about my artwork'.
