Judging by the number of visitors each year, Castle Combe is certainly considered to be one of England’s prettiest villages. The only evidence of the original site of the castle is the earthworks on higher ground above the village itself. Originally a British hill fort, it was later taken over by the Romans and then enlarged into a castle by the Normans. The beauty of the village owes much to the By Brook river, which in the middle ages had a more practical purpose of providing power for the booming wool industry.
As with all Gibsons Jigsaw Puzzle, the beautifully illustrated pieces are made from the highest quality 100% recycled board and are therefore a pleasure to work with again and again.
Terry Harrison was born near Wendover and attended Farnham Art School before becoming a graphic artist in London. Later, he joined the Yellow Pages as an illustrator and then Thompson Directories in their Farnborough head office. During his spare time, Terry pursued his first love: landscape painting.
By 1984 the demand for his original work was so great that he decided to paint full time and never looked back! After just 12 short years Terry was awarded the Best Up and Coming Published Artist of The Year by the Fine Art Trade Guild, and five years later in 2001, Terry had his first book Brush with Watercolour published; this sold over 140,000 copies.
It’s no surprise that Terry Harrison could claim to have his drawings in most homes throughout the country, in some form or another. Terry was a kind, thoughtful man who created wonderful pieces of art, many of which have been in Gibsons Jigsaw Puzzle range for almost two decades. He will be greatly remembered and we hope that his artwork continues to bring joy to all who have the privilege of viewing his paintings.
