Chan married Toss Woollaston's son Philip on 23 June 1967 in London.
1967 was also the final year that Toss lived in Greymouth. In 1966 he signed Peter McLeavey as his dealer and was finally able to concentrate on producing artworks and bring in a comfortable income. By 1968 the Woollastons had enough money set aside that they were able to return to Riwaka to live.
Portraiture continued as an important element in Toss' work and he developed it throughout his career. Suggestions of physical appearance and underlying personality were achieved in quick and spontaneous compositions, displaying the dramatic energy of his style.
