Biography
  • Daphne Kingston (nee Watt) was born on 11 November 1928 in Earlwood, Sydney to parents George Seymour Watt and Frances Mary (nee Griffin). George was a widower with two children, Ray Georgina and George Covington when he married Frances. Daphne’s maternal grandparents were Charles and Jane Griffin and her paternal grandparents were Charles Llewellyn Watt and Elizabeth Georgiana Covington Troy.
  • Daphne spent the first seven years of her life in Earlwood before moving to Mackay with her mother in 1935 after the death of her father, sharing a house with her maternal grandparents, Aunt May, Uncle Percy and cousin Clare. From 1935 to 1945 Daphne obtained her education at three schools in Mackay, Victoria Park State School, Intermediate School and High School and from 1945 to 1950 worked at the wholesaler merchants J. Michemore and Co. Pty. Ltd.
  • In 1950 Daphne moved back to Sydney and found employment as secretary to the accountant of the Snowy Mountains, Hydro-Electric Authority. Daphne married Jeffrey Edgar Kingston at St George Church of England, Hurstville in 1951 and they had a daughter, Janice on 20 March 1959. Daphne travelled extensively throughout Europe during the late 1980’s and 1990’s finally returning to Penshurst in Sydney.
  • Daphne progressed a life long love of art by studying at Julian Ashton Art School, Royal Art Society, Watercolour Institute and privately with Brian Blanchard and John Upton over the period from 1969-1976. In 1982 Daphne began teaching art at Penhurst Arts and Crafts, Evening Colleges at Strathfield and Bankstown in Sydney and later in 1984 from her home studio.
  • From 1976 until 1999 Daphne produced illustrations for publications “Hillsides Dew Pearled” by Dorothy Coleman and “A Colonial Scene” edited by Professor R. I. Jack. Over that period Daphne wrote and illustrated several publications; “The Changing Hawkesbury” (1979), “Early Slab Buildings of the Sydney Region” (1985), “Sydney's Hidden Charms” (1987), “Early Colonial Homes of the Sydney Region 1788-1838” (1990), “A Hawkesbury sketchbook” (1994) and “Highways and Byways of the Sydney Region” (1999).
