Artist Dill O'Hagan:

I have been drawing and painting all of my life.  My first “masterpiece” was a mural drawn on the wall outside my bedroom when I was 3 years old. When confronted by my mother, I insisted “Dewey did it!”, (my imaginary friend). I continued painting with a passion, and after high school in Winston-Salem, NC, I graduated with a BFA in Painting & Printmaking from Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Virginia. 

I have lived all over Virginia: from the City of Richmond, to 17 acres in the mountains near Charlottesville, to a cottage on the Rappahannock River, to big city life in Vienna, just outside of D.C.  Coming full circle, I returned to Richmond and now live with my three wonderful kitties, Willow & Cypress (Katrina survivors) and Luna Kahuna, the protector of my garden. Turning my living room and dining room into spacious, light-filled studios, I have retired from the corporate rat race to paint to my heart’s content.

I have been painting my specialized Pet Portrait Pillows for over fifteen years. I have customers all over the world, since the love of a good pet has no boundaries. I created the Captured Moments Pillows to accommodate my customers’ requests to paint their grandchildren.  A new pet, or a beloved departed one; a new grandchild, or a wonderful adventure in your life; there is always something special to celebrate and capture.

Please follow me on my Original Works by Dill O’Hagan Facebook page where I will be posting photographs of new pillows I paint, as well as some of my other creative passions including watercolors, drawings, oil painting, collage, and beaded jewelry. There I will also welcome and respond to any comments or questions about my work.

Thank you for visiting me and spending a little time in my world.  I always welcome your comments and I would love to discuss your special requests at any time.
