Dorothy Fagan

DOROTHY FAGAN uses color to activate healing energy. Wearable fiber art inspired by her colorful landscape and floral paintings include wrap scarves of botanic silk from beechwood trees, cocoon jackets, and one-of-a-kind sparkly sweaters and purses.

Dorothy’s passion for fiber was nurtured by her mother Pauline who taught her to sew and design clothing and home décor. Dorothy writes about her life-after-death collaboration with her mother in the Joy’s Garden series books.

Fagan’s paintings and fiber art stand apart in international collections including; Musee de La Grande Vigne, Dinan, France, Boston Children's Hospital, U Mass. Memorial Research Center, City University of New York, and Longwood University Art Museum.


Inspired by dreams and memories, Dorothy Fagan fuses spectral colors to create paintings that soothe and energize all at once. “Melting stress with color,” she says, “triggers chakra energy centers along the spine to spiral upward.” Working in oils, heavily applied with palette knife, or brushed thinly in translucent glazes, Fagan’s oil paintings engage us in the creative process, mixing colors, textures, dreams, and emotions in a healing menagerie of the senses.
