The 'Independent' 15 June 2004 on the death of Evangeline Dickson [q.v.]
'...in 1960 with their young family they moved to Westerfield near Ipswich in Suffolk. Because of her strong allergy to dust, they built a new house for themselves which was considered healthier, if less picturesque, than an old one. The new house was constructed with a studio, for Dickson who now felt able to follow her passion for painting. Although she did not attend a school of art she studied with two local artists, Violet Garrod, the painter and miniaturist, and Anna Airy' [q.v.].

Violet Garrod died at 12 Rabling Road, Swanage, Dorset, retired portrait painter, on 1 April 1982 and her death was recorded at Poole, Dorset in the 2nd quarter of 1982. She was unmarried.
