About Daniel

Daniel Moore grew up in Iowa City and attended the University of Iowa. He obtained his BFA in Graphic Design & Photography and minored in Ceramics and Metalwork/Jewelry. Upon graduation he relocated to Phoenix, AZ. and worked full time as a graphic designer for a variety of corporate entities. Inspired by the works of Ansel Adams, he pursued his love of photography by photographing the natural world while hiking, backpacking and mountain biking throughout Arizona. At his last position, he was introduced to working with metal and welding, self-taught, Daniel expanded to 3-Dimensional pieces, starting The Oxide Studio in 2010.

Graphic representations of Arizona’s unique plant life were the inspiration for his botanical themed panels, the first pieces created at The Oxide Studio. His photographic background influenced the choice to “frame” each design within the confines of a rectangle, producing a contemporary, somewhat formal presentation that contrasts well with the colors and organic forms in its environment.

In addition to showing his work in galleries in the Phoenix Metropolitan area he has been commissioned to create many works on all scales for both residential and commercial clients. His completed projects include inspired sculptural pieces, memorable freestanding works, gateways, enclosures, furniture and more.The last few years have seen him move into the Public Art arena, an area he is strongly drawn to. His awards can be viewed in Arizona (Phoenix, Tucson, Tempe, Scottsdale, Chino Valley, Mesa), Oklahoma City, OK., Augusta, GA. and The City of Henderson, NV.
