Artist. Writer. Educator. The love of my life.

Perry Shirley is a contributing artist to 1870 Oakland and her sister company, Feisty Fashion, as well as the Eco Blog, Wonk on the Wildlife.  He pushes brushes, rapidographs, quills, pencils and fountain pens across various paper products in order to fashion “art” with great zeal and varying aplomb.

A minor blip in 21st-century American journalism, he won the Associated Collegiate Press “Reporter of the Year” award in 2004.   

Mr. Shirley currently works at a French private school in Berkeley while he pursues his teaching credential.
