Meet Dorothy Fagan

At seven, she knew she would be an artist. When the nuns handed her a box of colored chalks, she painted a picture of the Virgin Mary on the blackboard. As a young mother, she sent her delicate pastel landscapes, off to win international recognition, while she did the twins' diapers. After an attacker threatened her life, she lost her ability to paint them. Her incredible journey to Joy's Garden began in Provence, where she discovered the colors within and the purpose of her artistry though writing.
