I am Mr. Shields. I was born and raised in the military. My father was in the Air Force and I have lived everywhere from Colorado Springs, CO to Tacoma, WA to Las Vegas, NV. Now, my wife is a nurse in the Air Force and we moved here from Bolivar, MO in 2007.
For most of my life I have always been interested in art. I took several art classes in high school and continued to pursuit art in college. I have a Bachelor of Science Degree in Commercial Art. After graduating from Southwest Baptist University, I attended graduate school at Savannah College of Art and Design and received a Master of Fine Arts degree in Illustration.
