Discovering Joy's Garden
Looking for new direction in my life and art, the chance to go on an artist's residency in France was a dream come true! I had been through the mud. Challenges of raising three boys. Trauma of the attempt on my life. The loss of my mother, how could I possibly move forward?

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.
