healing art for america

touch the 

peaceful heart

within.

In a painting called Dream'd a Wish, Dorothy Fagan prays for peace with each stroke of her paintbrush. Transforming emotions into vibrant colorful garden landscapes, she creates Joy's Garden, her gift of healing art for America.

Dorothy first began praying with color in private gardens as her mother battled brain cancer three decades ago. Imagining her canvas as a mirror, she balances emotional colors ~ warm and cool, light and dark, creating harmony in her own body of reflections ~ transforming trauma and loss into healing art for a world in need.



"I draw imagery from memories, dreams, and snippets of day to day life ~ translating sparks of the Creator's Light into thick strokes of paint. Quietly I begin receiving delicate veils of color, washing translucent glazes, etching and carving lines and textures with a palette knife . . . until I feel a visceral kind of peace."



Watercolor Postcard Turns
into Joy's Garden Mural Paintings

WATCH THE VIDEO  & see how I leap frog ideas to nourish inspirations. Feeding inspiration works like tending a garden. See how one watercolor postcard turns into a triptych mural, silk scarves, and books to nurture your creativity.

"I love your work and feel such an affinity for your life and message. There are so many of your paintings I didn't purchase that I wish, now, I had! 


"I am getting these and am so pleased. Thank you, so much!"

~ Jeannelle, Boise, ID

Garden of Seven Graces

Returning from France eight years ago, I nourished  my watercolor postcard dreams with bigger canvas. Discovering my new palette aligns with the chakras, I now feel colors more deeply in my body. This released the Garden of Seven Graces; blush, sparkle, joy, compassion, iridescence, splendor, and  harmony onto canvas.

"Your work is exceptional. It is priceless, precious and heartfelt. What you create is a gift to this world. 


"What I see in your work speaks unapologetically for itself. When you create something good and worthy it stands in its own. You do that."

~ Lisa S., TN

    Dorothy Fagan

    EXPRESSIONIST COLORIST HEALING ARTIST

    Dorothy Fagan knew she would be an artist in the second grade, when the nuns encouraged her to copy a picture of the Virgin Mary on the chalkboard. As a young mother, she won recognition for her large pastels at Pastel Society of America, Pastel Society of Canada, Copley Society, and the National Arts Club in New York.


    But when an assailant's knife threatened her life, Dorothy lost her ability to paint her delicate abstract pastel landscapes. Inexpressible emotions screamed in silence, catapulting her on an incredible healing art journey. Releasing emotions into strokes of pure pigment, she discovered the flow of colors within could help her find the peace she so dearly yearned for. 

    On an artist residency in France, Dorothy found new direction for her artistry. Juxtaposing ancient man-made structures with her landscapes, she began exploring the relationship between human and divine in her paintings. Realigning her palette with the chakras, she discovered an internal switch that would light creativity. Her ColorME Energized palette fuels her life with a fusion of heart, soul, and passion.


    Studying painting and music as a child, Dorothy completed her B.F.A. in Printmaking and Painting at East Carolina University in 1974.  In a ten-year American Masters Painting Mentorship from 1979 - 89, Robert Bowers Mayo guided Dorothy to look inside herself for inspiration.


    Fagan's art stands apart in international exhibitions including  DressME Milan Fashion Week HerStory 2020-2021, and Art Ideal,  and in collections including; Musee de La Grande Vigne, Dinan, France; U Mass. Memorial Research Center, City University of New York, and Longwood University Art Museum, and numerous corporate and private collections.
