Artist Statement

"I can taste the colors! Spreading myself like peanut butter across the landscape, I feel transported."   

Sarah Muehlbauer in a review for Coda Magazine

"Fagan’s expressionistic style comes from a creative process that’s devotional, cultivated through subtle repetition and awareness. The day we speak, it is solstice, and she remarks on the day as one of subtlety, the most internalized day of the year, an ideal time to refine the balance of warm and cool, light and shadow within her works-in-progress. This fine attunement to process and nature supports the artist’s genuine resolution to distill an ineffable experience into aesthetic form, offering viewers a witnessing and recognition of their spiritual-emotional life."

Dorothy writes

My process transports me back and forth between dream and physical worlds. Feelings, nuances of color come into the physical world as powerful healing acts. Awareness and intent amplify the human self-healing heart.
