dc.description Jane Shaw grew up on the eastern seaboard of the United States, and studied for a year at the Portland School of Fine Arts. She met her future husband, C. Anthony Law, at Montreal's Ecole des Beaux Arts. They were married in 1942, when he was in the navy, and she taught high school art classes in New Hampshire until he returned home from the war in 1945. The Laws moved to Halifax in 1951. Jane Shaw's association with Saint Mary's began when her husband was appointed the first Curator of the Art Gallery in 1968. She taught classes in watercolours in the 1970s, assisted her husband with scenery for the Drama Society, and is a 17-year member of the Women's Faculty Association, serving as its President for five years. Jane Shaw's artistic career has spanned many media, but watercolour is her favourite medium. Exhibitions of Jane Shaw's work were held hat the University Art Gallery in 1970, 1977 and 1987. She was made an honorary Doctor of Letters in 1981, along with her husband, Anthony Law.
