In 2007, Shane began the Certificate IV in Fine Arts at Hunter Street (Newcastle) TAFE. As a mature age, part-time student she was finally embarking on a path she’d never thought possible – formal art training. In 2011, Shane completed the Advanced Diploma in Fine Arts, majoring in painting. She was a finalist in the Ford Grant, which is awarded in recognition of outstanding aptitude.
