About Picture my Past
We are Andy and Katrina and we started this business in 2018. Originally it was just going to be Katrina offering a genealogy research service but, wanting to find a way to make ourselves a little bit different, we designed beautiful trees to present your four or five generation family pedigree in. That then developed into gifts for families in the present time to celebrate and treasure each other because our lives and the people in them are precious.
In addition to our theme of celebrating family relationships, we wanted to design gifts for anyone else who has an impact on our lives, like teachers, and friends who should also be appreciated. Friends, of course, are like the extra family we choose for ourselves. So we extended our gift designs to include teachers and friends too.
Andy & Katrina
Katrina has worked as a genealogist for 40 years working on her own tree as well working as a consultant to help others with theirs. She is a qualified adult education tutor and teaches courses and is a public speaker on family history research.
Andy has a retail background, formerly as a company director and director of senior management training in the East of England for a large, nationwide retail group. He is also the main carer for his special needs son.
Archie bear is our rescue dog who joined our family in June 2018 when he was 3 years old. He's a staffie, possibly with some mastiff in him, and the sweetest, cutest little bear ever.
He's very intelligent too (there's a big brain inside that big head) so he likes to help us all he can - usually by trying to lie on the laptop when Katrina is working! He is our alarm clock to make sure we take plenty of breaks - which usually coincides with walkies, dinner and bed time!
We actually think he's related to Chewbacca because he makes a similar noise when he turns over in his sleep!
