From an early age, Tim Shinabarger developed an obsession with wildlife and "wild" places. At the age of twelve, he picked up taxidermy as a hobby, working on small animals. As he progressed to larger game, he accepted commissions, beginning a taxidermy business. He went to business school at Eastern Montana College, earning his degree in 1990. While completing his studies, he took a summer job working as a ranger and firefighter in the Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness and, in 1987, he worked at the Bureau of Land Management in Custer National Forest. Witnessing masses of wildlife, Shinabarger sketched, painted, and made bronze studies. He took a few art classes while attending Eastern Montana College, and furthered his art education by attending workshops presented by prominent artists and studying the works of past masters.
