Ken Dust

Wildlife art creations, are a true description of the works of Oregon artist Ken ‘Dusty’ Dust. Blending his skills as an accomplished fly dresser, fisherman, & artist, his works incorporate the skills & knowledge of both worlds in finely detailed paintings & exhibitions of fly tying art. Primary areas of study include the early history & development of fly tying & it’s evolution from the 13th century, as fishing tackle as we know it, would not happen for another 400 years. Most of these early fly patterns have been lost or forgotten in time as more modern patterns & colors were developed. In addition to his tying & fishing skills, highly detailed artworks are generated thru the use of colored pencils. As a member of the Guild of Natural Science Illustrators, Audubon Society & the Colored Pencil Society of America, his works have been exhibited in galleries across the nation & have won numerous awards. His works reside in many private collections from coast to coast.
