1991-1999

Rebecca and Robin Grierson met and soon after started a family, living in Sydenham, London. Robin and Oscar had studied at the Royal College of Art simultaneously, but only afterwards met when Rebecca introduced them. Robin was already established as a photographer.

Glory moved to Alton, Hampshire on the death of husband Teddy. She ceased her crochet work.

Oscar was commissioned to devise projects within education, health care and the community. He meanwhile produced a series of drawings exploring ‘club dance’ culture.

He took part in a family exhibition with Pauline and Howard in Marylebone, London, who were very productive at the time. For example, Howard made assemblages of found, everyday objects. Pauline made large collages and cloth appliqués. They helped form ‘Guildford Art Perspective’ and in it collaborated in several exhibitions, publications and talks with other invited artists.

Meanwhile, Howard worked extensively with people suffering from mental illness and drug miss-use at ‘Creative Response’, Farnham, Surrey. Pauline’s career in teaching drew to a close.
