Dorothy Fagan

"I can taste the colors! As if the flavor, aroma, essence of each delicious hue flows from an aquafir within."

In My Garden by the Sea - Oil 36 x 60 in.

Transforming trauma into strokes of color, American painter, Dorothy Fagan began her incredible healing journey home. Residencies in France and Italy helped her develop the healing chakra colors palettes she utilizes in her lush oil paintings today.

With Dream, Flow, Bloom, Soar series, Dorothy Fagan helps viewers mix colors optically, engaging chakra energy centers along the spine to raise their frequencies. You can feel these uplifting and soothing wavelengths pulsing gently as 'oooo' and 'ahhh,' while viewing her paintings.

A healing colorist artist, Dorothy Fagan has written books including, Embrace the Mountain, in which she shares the development of her palette in France. She presents zoom studio talks, ColorME Energized. More information at JOYSGARDEN.ORG  Fagan holds a BFA in printmaking and painting from East Carolina University, and did a ten-year mentorship in American Masters with Robert Bowers Mayo. She lives and paints in Virginia in her studio by the pond.

Shimmering - Oil 36 x 48 in.
Island of Dreams - Oil 36 x 48 in.
