dhseadragon Tokitae/Lolita


During the late 60’s, early 70’s, 45 baby orcas were kidnapped from their home in the Salish Sea and sold to aquariums for entertainment purposes. Today, Tokitae is the lone survivor. Her name, meaning Pretty Day, was changed to Lolita. For the last nearly 50 years she has been performing for the enjoyment of people from a much-too-small aquarium in Miami.

We have the opportunity to do right by her and her family by retiring “Lolita” from show business. Help Tokitae return to her home and clan in the Pacific Northwest. Learn more about the plans in effect to facilitate her homecoming, contact the Whale Museum in Friday Harbor.

A portion of the proceeds from this sculpture will go to help Tokitae in her journey home.


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.
