Josephine Matley Duddle Ghilchik (1890-1981) was the daughter of James Duddle, a musician and teacher of Lancashire, England, and Ellen, his wife.  Josephine studied at the Municipal School of Art, Manchester, England.

In 1915, she married the artist and cartoonist, David Louis Ghilchik, who had been her fellow student.  Ghilchik was born in 1892 in Botosani, Romania, but had emigrated to Lancashire with his family.  The Ghilchiks resided in and around London.  David Ghilchik died in London, England in 1972. 

At the age of 90, Josephine emigrated to Australia to be with her daughter, Sybil O'Donoghue (an opera singer), and grand-children.  Josephine Duddle Ghilchik died in Mosman, Sydney, Australia, the following year.
As an artist, she illustrated comic postcards with children and fairies, using her maiden name. Most of this work was done in the years between the two world wars.  She was a member of The Royal Institute of Oil Painters and the Society of Women Artists. When she painted landscapes and portrait studies, she usually signed her works with her married name, "Josephine Ghilchik."
She also wrote and illustrated two books - One, Two, Buckle my Shoe (published 1916; ISBN-10: B000WXWBO8) and Kittles of Toy Town (Publisher: London; New York: R. Tuck & Sons, 19??).
