About the Author
Danielle Stringer is the artist behind Imperfect Dust. She began creating signs with scripture and inspiring words in an effort to give God the glory for the blessings He has given to her. The words she letters are meant to encourage other believers to remain focused on the eternal things in life. “Imperfect Dust” is derived from Psalm 103:15, “For He knows our frame, He remembers that we are dust.” This scripture speaks of God knowing how imperfect we are, yet He loves us and show us mercy in spite of our imperfections.
Imperfect Dust has since grown into a family business. She creates alongside her father, Danny, who handles all things woodworking. He builds the wood signs and frames while she handles the lettering.
