Enfys Graham was married to David Graham. They spent a year living in Greymouth while waiting for David's school house to be built in Kumara Junction.
When Toss Woollaston moved to Greymouth, David and Woollaston quickly became lasting friends. David was very interested with what Woollaston had to share with him about his art and the two, along with Clari Sofield, would go out painting together on the weekends.
Having given up his Rawleigh's salesman run in order to take up a trip to Europe in 1962, sponsored by a Government Arts Council grant, Woollaston began to struggle financially on return to Greymouth. Although his reputation was on the rise, he was still unable to support himself wholly through his art.
