About me

My name is Lizzy Ragan. I am a watercolor artist inspired by a life-long love of the outdoors. Mostly, you'll find me recreating scenes from the Pacific Northwest -- the Cascade Mountains, landscapes, and wildflowers.

In 2019, I was in a sporting accident that left me paralyzed from the chest down. While this may have changed how I get outside, it hasn't dampened my passion for it. Painting is one way in which I still spend time with the places and facets of nature that I love.

Art is medicine -- it has been an indispensable part of my healing journey.


I will be racing the 2023 Boston Marathon in the handcycling division with Team Boston Medical Center. Help me reach my fundraising goal!
