About Robert Shields:
He was one of my favorite tv personalities in the 60's. Wonderful mime, turned actor, turned artist. Before the airing of his tv show Robert first became well known all over the world as THE San Francisco Street Mime in the 60′s and 70′s. At that time he joined up with dancer Lorene Yarnell and created there own variety show called, Shields and Yarnell. He has been an artist, sculpture and painter. His creations are a “Celebration of the Imagination”. His art creations are both silly and serious. His painting are both personal and telling of his life experiences. I met Robert Shields in Sedona at his studio in the late 90.s and have been a collector and lovers of his whimsical artistry ever since. They make me smile. I love the desert, the painted colors of the mountains and sunsets. His art capsulizes all that is beautiful about Sedona and Arizona.
