for June, 2019
*Featured Artist Alert*
Penelope Shaw is our June 2019 Featured artist!
Penelope Shaw has enjoyed drawing and painting since childhood. It began with the “Learn to Draw” kit from John Gnagy, a popular television program in the 50’s and with the encouragement of her grade 3 teacher to pursue her talent. She has studied with several local artists throughout her life. In the Niagara area, she has married, raised a family of three, and now enjoys sharing her passion with her grandchildren. Since retiring, Penelope has focused on her love of art, preferring oils for their brilliance. She credits years as a home decor paint colourist for her ability to mix many different colours from a limited palette, rather than using manufactured blends. She loves to use the play of light in her subject matter which is taken from the local area and her travels.
Next time you are in the store, make sure to take a look around… Penelope’s works might just be the finishing piece to your living room, kitchen, or office decor!
