Kurt Shaw, born and raised Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, earned a B.F.A. from Carnegie Mellon University in 1989, and then began his career as an illustrator and cartoonist. He was met with immediate success, having his work in national publications including Cosmopolitan, The Saturday Evening Post, Woman’s World, the National Enquirer and more. In 1992 he shifted his focus to fine art, and began creating sculpture, including a major commission from his alma mater.
