dhSeadragon Sassy in Crushed Velvet

Sassy in Crushed Velvet

What do you get when you cross a giraffe with a zebra?  Probably something resembling an okapi!  Such fascinating animals from their soft-crushed velvet looking coat, to their long, purple tongue.  These gentle creatures are rain forest dwellers.  They use their long legs and necks to sample leaves in the canopies overhead.  Their dark chocolate and cream colored fur is camouflaged with stripes on their back end and legs.

This sassy girl is ever the tease.  Flashing her striped back side while sticking out her tongue.  She was created to be part of the auction at the Phoenix Zoo, ZooFari 2019: Tropical Nights.  The Phoenix Zoo is one of the largest non-profit, privately funded zoos in the country.  Proceeds from this fun filled night benefit the Phoenix Zoos conservation initiatives, advancement in education, and mission to provide stewardship and conservation of animals in their habitats while inspiring people to care for the natural world.

Come early to put your bids in, then enjoy the creations of notable Arizona chefs, drinks by local purveyors, and visits by some of the zoo residents.  There will be live music, dancing, and a glimpse of ZooLights 2019.

ZooFari 2019: Tropical Nights is Friday, October 4 from 6-10:30 at the Phoenix Zoo, 455 N. Galvin Parkway, Phoenix, AZ 85008 (wear tropical cocktail attire)

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.
