Artist Bio - Brigitte Shaw

My formal training in art began as a pupil of the Tonal Realist tradition, Graham Moore.  Here I was working solely indoors and on still life subjects - a very solid grounding for my artistic future.  However, a move to the Mornington Peninsula provided the abundance of light and space that living with a sea view provided.  I also discovered the pastel medium at this time and gradually my work changed accordingly. I am loving the vast sky I see every day, the bay always in my view, the ocean a short drive away, as well as the bush a short walk from home.  Occasionally other mediums take my attention for a short while - as well as oils I have produced works in water colours and gouache.  But I always return to my lovely pastels.
