Early Years

Airbrush Fantasy Style Face Painting Since 1979

Airbrush Face Painting was born when Star Shields airbrushed some rainbow designs on the faces of friends who were modeling his early airbrushed dresses. The year was 1979! Shields' idea has since caught on big in the US and is growing worldwide.

In 1982, he founded FANTASY FACES with fellow artist and friend Michelle C. Ries. Together they have been hired to airbrush thousands of faces for art festivals, schools, corporate events, fairs and theme parks throughout the US.

Star Shields and his crew have been performing at The Yavapai County Fair in Prescott, Arizona since 1985, at The Laguna Beach California Sawdust Festival for 21 years and for Disney Studios and Disneyland events since 1993.
