RUSTIC STEEL was founded in 2002 by Dominique Martinez. Starting out in Long Island, New York in finance and business, Dominique worked through various positions throughout Corporate America until making the executive decision to become a self-taught artist in Tampa, Florida. What started out as an overnight hobby in a warehouse among Tampa’s Channelside District, turned into a monstrosity of creations around the greater Tampa Bay Area. Our work can be seen all over both the private and public sector, ranging from Villas and private art collections to 5-star restaurants and hotels, as well as several 9-11 Memorials which have been recognized throughout the service community.The diverse clientele allows our company to implement unique and varying styles from industrial to traditional to everything in between. Each project is unique and crafted with the highest quality. Although not apparent, we are a one stop shop. RUSTIC STEEL is able to bring a homeowners dreams to life, then have that homeowner refer the company to a friend who also happens to own a corporation in search of artwork or signage, as well as teaching their son or daughter to bring out their creative side in one of their welding classes. RUSTIC STEEL has it all and wants to share it with the world.
