Peggy Shaw has been watercolour painting for over fifty years and still enjoys the magic of the medium. She exhibits in local art shows and opens her studio each year during Arts Open or by appointment.
She intends to do her best painting on her 100th birthday, in two years time.
“One of my favourite subject matters is native flowers and proteas. I have a collection of old ginger jars which I use in many paintings. I am 97 years of age and this is a very recent work.”
Proteas in Ginger Jar is currently on display at Cantwell Property, 275 Barker St. Castlemaine.
