James Shields

In 2009, a year after graduating from Howard University with a degree in Business Marketing, I found myself laid off from my corporate job in New York City. While considering options for future work, I decided to explore my passion for the arts- I started painting. A few months later… I made that my "real job.”

I’ve had a few more jobs and experiences since that moment. They’ve allowed me to travel and live internationally, become a talented educator, and build a design career that impacts communities for the better.

I’m currently based in Oakland, CA.

Drop a line. I look forward to hearing from you.
