JAN HAGARA'S WORK REFLECTS BACK INTO A TIME OF CURLS, LACE, BONNETS AND BISQUE DOLLS FOR A MOMENT, THEN RETURN TO TODAY OF MODERN CONVENIENCES, THE BEST OF TWO WORLDS.

EACH DESIGN BEGINS WITH AN IDEA , POSSIBLY A SKETCH, WHILE A MODEL IS LOCATED TO FINISH OUT THE IDEA. A PHOTO SESSION IS SCHEDULED DURING WHICH THE CHILD-MODEL IS DRESSED IN THE COSTUME CHOSEN BY JAN FROM HER SELECTION OF ANTIQUE CLOTHING. FROM THE PHOTOGRAPHS MADE DURING THE SESSION, ONE OR MORE ARE CHOSEN.

AT THIS POINT, JAN HAGARA, THE PAINTER, TURNS TO HER CANVAS. AND USING THE WATER-COLORS ON HER PALETTE, THIS WIDELY COLLECTED ARTIST-DESIGNER BRINGS TO LIFE THE LITTLE PEOPLE FOR WHOM SHE IS SO FAMOUS. HAGARA'S PAINTINGS ARE BEAUTIFULLY DETAILED, BUT IN EACH, ONE DETAIL STANDS OUT. IF YOU LOOK CAREFULLY AT EACH DESIGN, YOU WILL SEE HER DISTINCTIVE TRADEMARK, THE BLUE "HASH MARKS", TWO STROKES OF BLUE PAINT HIDDEN IN THE PAINTING. CLOSE SCRUTINY WILL USUALLY FIND HER TRADEMARKS IN THE CHILD'S HAIR.

JAN'S ARTISTRY IS A NATURAL PART OF HER LIFE. SHE HAS ALWAYS PAINTED, MOSTLY IN WATER-COLORS; SHE LOVES CHILDREN, AND IS, HERSELF, A COLLECTOR OF FINE ANTIQUES AND DOLLS. WITNESS THE FIRST ARTIST TO DEPICT AUTHENTIC ANTIQUE DOLLS IN THE PAINTINGS OF HER TURN-OF-THE-CENTURY CHILDREN. HER ART HAS MANY FOLLOWERS AND IMITATORS, BUT SHE REMAINS THE UNIVERSAL STAR OF HER CRAFT.

JAN HAGARA WAS BORN IN TULSA, OKLAHOMA AND GREW UP IN SAND SPRINGS, OKLAHOMA. SHE AND HER HUSBAND, BILL NOW RESIDE IN GEORGETOWN, TEXAS.
