About

dhSeadragon Distinctive Designs by Dadra Hunt: Detailed Wildlife Sculpture and Custom Pet Portraits

Creating art has always been a passion of mine and metal work seems to resonate with me the most. I love taking hard, seemingly impassive, sheets of metal and watching the faces of a dog, or the wings of a bird take shape from their metallic beginnings.
Though, particularly fond of working with steel, I sometimes work with aluminum and copper. I often give life to my pieces by incorporating; layers, textures, stained glass, color, or some form of motion...
I have been sculpting metal under the pseudonym dhSeadragon, for many years. Why dhSeadragon? While in collage at the University of Arizona, we were assigned the task of coming up with 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. Today, most of my art is signed dhSeadragon.
I have tried my hand at projects such as metal gates, doors, and furniture, but it is with the creation of extremely detailed wildlife sculptures and custom pet portraits that I feel I have found my niche.
When not in the shop working on the next dhSeadragon Distinctive Design, I can most often be found out hiking a trail, or playing on the water. I have been fortunate to have been able to see so many beautiful things in this world. My art is a reflection of the sights, words, and ideas that I hold dear.
My dogs, Olive and Stanley, often accompany me on my adventures. They are a big part of my life and cheerleaders of my art. Naturally, I had to create art just for them. (they are not spoiled...well, maybe a little...OK, a lot). Bowl stands, signs, and pet portraits adorn our abode.
dhSeadragon, Furry Friends portrays my pet related art, while Stately Statues houses my wildlife sculptures.
As I am a supporter of people and places that care for, and find homes for less fortunate pets, or help rehabilitate and protect our wildlife, a portion of all proceeds goes to one of our favorite pet or wildlife charities.

All the best,

Dadra Hunt
