' 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 and studied with two local artists, Violet Garrod, the painter and miniaturist, and Anna Airy.
