During World War II Christie served in the Scottish Rifles, resulting work finding its way into the Imperial War Museum.

After the war Christie studied at Glasgow School of Art, 1946-50, mural painting under Walter Pritchard. He gained the Newberry Medal in 1950 and a post-diploma year's study. After a period teaching and a six-month travelling scholarship taken on the continent Christie resumed teaching and completed many murals, including Glasgow University and the Iona Community House. With his wife Eleanor, a sculptor, he moved to London in 1957 and again taught, while completing murals and much other work.

We are grateful to Eleanor Christie-Chatterley for assistance.
