About the Speaker

Shirley is a multi-talented artist who studied graphic design at the Art Institute of Atlanta. He makes his living doing what he loves, creating art.  Everyone in this area has seen the murals that brighten and beautify so many of our buildings.  Those murals are only a portion of the type of work Colt does. One of his most recent projects was an awesome metal sculpture of an eagle. “The scope and energy of his work is fantastic and we are looking forward to hearing him speak,” says past president of the CAA, Edward Nester. Shirley’s work can be seen online at
