Jeanne Adeney (1903-1992), wife of Canadian cellist Marcus Adeney (1900-1998), was a well-known writer and artist. Their son Christopher (1929-2000) became known for his ink drawings, graphics, oils, and watercolours. Mother and son seem to have found inspiration in music and the beauty of nature. Lots of ideas here for your own family Christmas cards.
