Did you catch our story about renowned Castlemaine watercolourist Peggy Shaw and daughter and mosaics master Julie Shaw in last week’s Mail?
The pair have teamed up to present a vibrant exhibition of new works as part of the Castlemaine State Festival’s Open Studio Program.
The 99 year old artist told the Mail she has been enjoying her craft for well over 60 years.
“I started painting as a child but took a break to focus on raising my family. I rediscovered my love of painting in my 40s and haven’t looked back,” Peggy said.
The artist has been exhibiting in the Castlemaine State Festival since its inception and also enjoys participating in Arts Open in alternate years.
“I love it and I can’t wait for the next one!” Peggy says.
