Guthrie was one of the most gifted silk screen print makers of her generation.   In what might be seen as a posthumous collaboration, either shortly before or after the death of her husband Cecil Stephenson, she  reproduced, as silk screens, three of Stephensons iconic Abstracts from 1936, 1937 and 1938.  Inspired by this experiment Guthrie embarked,  in the  late 1960's,  on her Camelot prints, a series of bold hard edged abstract designs with  pure fields of colour, often using daring combinations.
