Audrey Dallas-Simpson (1925-1984) was one of the most successful commercial artists of
and she achieved her phenomenal success mainly through sales of prints
of her work which, at the height of her fame, literally sold in their
millions, rivalling sales of other popular print artists of the period
such as Tretchikoff. Mostly she signed her work Dallas-Simpson, but she
also painted under a number of pseudonyms including Emma Louise,
Audrey, and Kelita with a subtle change of style in the painting but
with the same subject matter.
Dallas-Simpson was originally from London, and moved with her husband in the mid 1960's
to live by the sea in a mobile home in Lancing, West Sussex. The two
worked as a team, with her husband helping to prime her canvases. She
was also known to paint directly on board.

The brains of the operation was Turtle, a lovable, unrepentant, small-time petty crook who could always see the profit. His accomplice and protector Razor Eddie provided the brawn as well as the charm. Both were needed as they had to deal with trouble from the police and other felons.
