dhSeadragon Star (Setareh) J46

Star (Setareh) J46

Artists have a unique opportunity, whether by written word, visual images, or sound, to raise awareness to issues and appeal for a call to action.  As a wildlife sculptor, my special gift is to give a voice to the animals I depict.

A voice or voices rather, that I would like to make heard with this sculpture of Star J46 are those of the three pods of orcas that navigate the waters between Washington and Canada.  The gentle giants stay in the area year round and are a delight to behold, but they are in need of our help.  Due to many factors such as; pollution, disease, and starvation, these icons of the Pacific Northwest are at risk of becoming a memory.  Efforts are being made to correct damages to their environment, but more involvement is needed.  To hear their story and to find out more about the programs, adoptions, and ways you can lend a hand, please contact the Whale museum and Center for Whale Research in Friday Harbor, San Juan Island, WA www.whalemuseum.org

Star J46 is a beautiful 9 year old female in the J pod.  The purchase of this sculpture comes with adoption papers for Star in your name.  Adoption proceeds support the stewardship of the endangered resident orcas and the Salish Sea ecosystem.

*I would like to personally dedicate this piece to a sweet little 8 year old named Setareh whose name in Farsi means Star.

Making the world a brighter place one smile at a time!

  My years at the University of Arizona in Tucson, AZ provided me with a wealth of opportunity to expand my background in art.  I was no longer confined to a small studio and therefore could make my projects mammoth if I chose to do so.  I was able to try my hand at set design, wood working, lights, etc…but I found that working with metal gave me the most satisfaction.
While in college, we were assigned the task of creating a nom de plume. dh is the first letter of my first and last name. Seadragon is a nickname dubbed to me by my father.
After graduating with my degree in fine art, the name stayed with me. Today, most of my art is signed dhSeadragon.
