dhSeadragon Buckalo


When I was a young girl, heading up to Cheyenne Mountain Zoo was a great treat. Tucked into the pines, the zoo had so many magnificent animals to see.  These adventures probably fueled my love for animals today.  One of the best memories, to me, was on the road to the zoo.  We would always stop off at a fenced in pasture (probably where the Broadmoor Resort is today).   In that pasture was a small heard of buffalo. I loved their big, shaggy faces and gentle eyes. I had a hard time saying buffalo at that age, so I called them “buckalos”.  Recently I was visiting a dear friend in Denver.  On our way to ski country, we had pulled off the side of the road for a snowball fight. To my surprise and delight, there were some buffalo that wandered over to watch us play.

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.
