Guys - found this dedicated website from 2020 thought worth adding. Her tiles are becoming very popular and I keep coming across them. Has a contact - I assume her daughter?

I'll reprint a bit of the info here - delete in needed

Christina was born in Cley next the Sea, Norfolk in 1932. Both her parents, Clare and Sydney Sheppard, were artists and she attended her first life class in Paris at the age of six. Subsequent studies took place at Camberwell School of Art 1951-1953 under Edward Ardizzone.

At Chelsea School of Art 1953 -1954 studied for a National Diploma of Design in book illustration.

After some freelance illustrating, Christina became interested in pottery, particularly in the decorative side and undertook commissions for tiled fireplaces, kitchens and bathrooms, as well as working freelance as a pottery designer and decorator.

Chelsea Pottery 1958-1964 where Christina made and designed Pottery.
1964-1980 Christina had a Pottery in Highgate where she lived with her husband the sculptor Jan Lubelski and had two children.
1980-1985 she had a pottery in Leiston Suffolk where she completed her mural of Shakespeare's Stratford.
1985-1990 Christina lived in Spain, Gozo and Cambridge where she explored painting, print-making, drawing, and lithography.
1990- she spilt her time between London and her beloved Norfolk, where she continues to draw and painting in oils and watercolours.

Christina's Ceramics have been shown at The Design Centre London and during the 1970s & 80s she sold in Harrods and Heal's.
