The Art of Dr. Barbara Bagan
artist, art therapist, educator, and consultant
I create art, practice art therapy, consult, and teach.
Expressionism informs my art; the depth psychology of C. G. Jung informs my therapy.
I am the Professor in Charge of Expressive Arts Therapy at Ottawa University in Phoenix, Arizona.
I consult with individuals, groups, and agencies. I share both my professional successes and mistakes.
I have been a nurse, a therapist, a teacher, and a university professor, but always an artist.
Making art provides the creative base for all my work. I celebrate in color the beauty of common subjects and ordinary scenes. I create in acrylics, watercolors, and mixed media.
The James Parkinson Tulip is the symbol for Parkinson’s disease. View Dr. Bagan's painting of the tulip and learn more here.
Watercolor is one of the preferred mediums for use for patients with Parkinson's Disease. Learn more and view examples of veil painting.
