Who We Are

“We believe purposeful work is about living out your true design.”

Gabriel and Kelly Shields are the husband-wife team leading Shields Art Studios as a Multimedia Production Services company for the Willamette Valley. Combining our talents and love of art, story-telling, and design we’re here to serve our community so they get to witness our belief that purposeful work is about living out your true design.

Our Story

We never thought we’d be saying the words “we’re starting our own business” only a year after being married. Although there were times throughout our dating history that we collaborated on projects such as conceptualizing illustrations for Gabriel’s fantasy novels and perhaps most notably planning our wedding, we always thought working together and doing our own business was a pipedream far in the future. The combination of our love of art, storytelling, and design along with the increasing stresses not only in our own work/life balance but also in those around us, made us question the current status of the working environment. We were tired of hearing the words “it just is” and came to the conclusion that if that’s a good enough answer for the majority of the world, then we should take it upon ourselves to provide a successful alternative. Just because something currently is one way, doesn’t mean it should or was intended to always be that way.

Shields Art Studios was created to be that alternative. Although its origin began back in 2015 with Gabriel creating meaningful comics about real-life problems, Gabriel soon decided that was not the direction Shields Art Studios was meant to go. With its new purpose, the phoenix logo has stayed the same, but Shields Art Studios has been completely reborn. As a husband-wife team, we want to encourage our community to see the value they hold by helping them to share their stories in ways that help cultivate deeper collaboration, creativity, and relationships. Through our work ethic, we promote ideas that invite humanity back into the digital world so we can bring life back into work.

Currently, at Shields Art Studios we’re focusing on helping small businesses/organizations develop and grow their brand identity through a variety of platforms while demonstrating that businesses do not have to sacrifice a work/life balance to achieve results. We’ll discuss this topic, and others, with a variety of guests on our podcasts and blogs. In the future, we hope to expand into the creative world of short films and animations.

Though it took a while for Shields Art Studios to come back from the ashes, we can’t wait to see what its rebirth brings. We hope you’ll share this journey with us.

Our Mission

We believe purposeful work is about living out your true design. This belief stems from our observation that the current digital landscape values “connections” made by a click rather than a handshake. However, by being transparent and connecting with people on a personal level, we can bring humanity back into the digital world.  We, at Shields Art Studios, strive to foster relationships through the successful implementation of technology as a tool for meaningful communication. Relationships build trust, loyalty, and community – when you have those, you enrich people’s lives. When you enrich people’s lives, you have a successful business. Together, we can make that happen.
