Doreen Shaw

Doreen was born in Sydney, and studied at Professor Bissietta’s Art School. In the 1970s, she moved to Wollongong and studied at Wollongong Art School, completing an Art Certificate in 1979 which was followed by other studies and workshops.

In 1987, Doreen was accepted as a member of the Australian Miniature Art Society. Her miniatures have received national and international recognition. Doreen’s larger works have also won prizes throughout Australia including two awards in the 2005 Sydney Royal Easter Show, 2nd Prize Figurative 2006 Sydney Royal Easter Show and 2nd Prize 2007 Sydney Royal Easter Show – Australian Birds and Wildflowers.

Doreen’s solo exhibitions in 2003, 2004, 2005 and 2011 have led to further demand for her work. The exhibitions showcased the important elements of her work; design, composition and a fascination for light playing on familiar subjects. Gouache is Doreen’s current preferred medium, but she also works with transparent watercolour, mixed media and mono-printing.

Doreen’s works have been acquired by public institutions and private collections in Australia and throughout the world.

In the 2007 August issue No52 of “Artist’s Palette” Doreen was featured in a seven page article about her life as an artist and the techniques she uses to create her very distinctive works.
