dhSeadragon Hidden In Plain Sight

Hidden In Plain Sight

While cleaning up the yard, I was suddenly zoomed by a hummingbird.  I glanced over my shoulder to see that the feeder was full and so went on about cleaning up. I was zoomed again and but this time much closer. I stood up to see what the fuss was about and ended up eye level with the tiniest nest I’d ever seen.  Mama had built it right on top of a pinecone and I could just see over the lip that there were two teeny eggs inside. As the weeks progressed I was thrilled by the hatching and growth of the babies. Still, I questioned the sanity of building on top of a pinecone. Then again, any creature that can build a nest out of leaf debris and spider webs…with their nose…has to have some design skills, right? About two weeks after the babies flew away, the pinecone fell off the tree. I was so glad that the mama had zoomed me as I would have missed the whole thing-even though her nest was hidden in plain sight.


BTW, did you know that a portion of all dhSeadragon sales goes toward groups that protect, help rehabilitate, and act as stewards for our wildlife.

      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.
