 Christine Mayo was my friend for 25 years, partner for 10 years, wife for 4 years, a devoted artist who in the last years of her life achieved a BA Hons degree in fine art at Carlisle University while undergoing chemotherapy for cancer.  In her memory I am including a page of her art on this web site.  Her maiden name was Savage and she signed her work ‘Savi’.   Christine died 9th July 2011.
