Out of the Dust Designs

 
 
Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.

There And Back Again…

It’s been a long journey for Out of the Dust Designs, which began as a way to market wood sculptures that I was selling to raise funds for a mission trip to serve in the slums of Nairobi, Kenya. Several years later I began selling carvings and paintings in local craft fairs in the Reno / Sparks area in Northern Nevada with modest success. Then, spurred on by friends and family I decided to make OOD an actual business and began to do more comic and fantasy work and traveling to comic cons to sell my work. From Portland to Salt Lake City, to San Francisco, Sacramento, San Jose and everywhere in between. I’ve met a lot of great friends, hung my work in galleries and shops and even met a few celebrities like Stephen Amell, Ezra Miller, Kevin Sorbo, Chris 51 and Vic Mignogna.

The OOD Difference…

I’m the weird kind of artist that doesn’t believe in making hundreds of prints from my work and who brings predominately original pieces to shows. I believe in the value of keeping prints collectible by limiting them to only 30 prints per size of each piece. Each print is hand signed and numbered and each original is also signed and packed with care by me. I strive to keep my prices affordable because not only do I want people to be able to purchase my work, but I’d like to continue to make more work! Commissions are often available, so reach out if you have a special request!
