Shirley Conway is an emerging artist who began her artistic journey after retiring and moving from Montreal to St. Catharines. She credits artists such as Ed Telenko, Beverly Sneath, Gloria Kingma, Anne Reimer, and Pete Malaguiti from the Niagara region whom she studied under and who contributed to her artistic development. She is currently attending the Dunlop Older Adult Center in St. Catharines and continues to be inspired to take risks with her paintings.
“Painting allows me to engage with the world and other people. It fills my days with enthusiasm and accomplishments.”
