Dustin’s God given talents as an artist have always been present in his life. As a child and even into high school he never imagined it would become his career. His focus on surrealism and drawing was the beginning of his unique style. He developed many trade skills including woodworking, metalworking, painting and many others. After setbacks in many lines of work he pursued, the relentless desire to create and skills he accumulated would become the framework for his masterpieces. The theme that Dustin has acquired his inspiration from includes elements of the earth. Wind, fire, water, plants and anything organic. With also having an appreciation for a world of beautiful architecture. His work compliments and exists within and outside of several structures worldwide. Dustin started with galvanized steel and desired a metal material that would not rust so that he could preserve and amplify the silver look of metal. The abstract sculptures are primarily created from aluminum. A metal that will never rust. Aluminum is a modern top quality metal that can withstand the elements for a lifetime.
