For the first 15 years of her professional career Dill was primarily focused on portrait work for the entertainment industry, with assignments from a wide range of editorial clients, record companies and advertising. Her portraits of Halle Berry, Nicole Kidman, Joni Mitchell, Tina Turner, and many others have been published globally in prestigious venues from Vanity Fair and Rolling Stone to House and Garden and the New York and LA Times Magazines. Her commercial clients have included Adidas, BMG Music, Evian, Microsoft, Sony Music, Virgin Records, VH-1 and Warner Bros. Records, among others.
Today her practice concentrates on independent projects. Some of her earlier projects are influenced by her interests both in Eastern philosophies and modern art painting. Predominantly focused on nature, these projects reinterpret and transform her subject matter to near abstraction as an expression of her inner vision. Her current work takes visual inspiration in art that engages with questions of perception, light and space as she aims to bring the diversity of urban culture to the forefront. Among others, she has received two IPA Award Honorable Mentions, including Fine Art Abstract (2008) and Fine Art Book (2011).
Dill’s photographs and installations have been exhibited internationally at institutions such as the Hammer Museum Art Gallery, the Southeast Museum of Photography, Rose Gallery in Los Angeles, and Robert Morat Galerie in Hamburg, Germany. Her work is included in numerous public collections, including the George Eastman Museum, the Santa Barbara Museum of Art, the Southeast Museum of Photography in Florida, the Special Collections of Stanford University and UCLA. Her work has also been the subject of a monograph and special edition: Sea Etchings (Nazraeli Press 2011 and 2012 respectively).
