Color Muse: James Shields

AOC: Where are you from?

James: I grew up in Stockton, California, but I currently reside in Brooklyn, New York.

AOC: What do you do?

James: I’m a creative force of nature.

AOC: How does color inspire you?

James: Color gives me energy.  My purpose for painting is to capture this energy.   I think in color.  It’s like N.E.R.D.’s album Seeing Sounds. I see in color.

AOC: If there was one color used to describe you, what would it be and why?

James:  Blue to represent water.  Lately I’ve been going with the flow.

AOC: Where can we find you?

James:  My portfolio and blog are available at www.creativeshields.com.  You can also keep up with my updates on twitter.com/creativeshields.

The Color Muse series is a place to showcase artists, designers, fashionistas – anyone who uses color to ignite their creativity.  If you or someone you know is interested in being featured, please send an email to amanda@theaudacityofcolor.com.
