About Elizabeth G Fagan

Elizabeth G Fagan is an artist and writer who resides on Lake Michigan’s shoreline in southeastern Wisconsin—a place she calls Lake Michigan’s Left Coast. Her professional career in Corporate America spanned more than 35 years. She held positions such positions as:
  • Senior Editor (Rand McNally, Skokie, IL)
  • Help Author (Microsoft, Redmond, WA)
  • Manager of Web Development (Oprah.com, Harpo, Chicago, IL)
Fagan went to a private, arts-centered high school (The Hammonasset School) on Connecticut’s shoreline. There she developed lifelong habits of making art, taking photographs, and writing.
Fagan attended Grinnell College (Grinnell, Iowa) and Grinnell-in-London. She completed both a BA /English and an MA/Linguistics at University of Illinois Chicago (UIC). She attended The University of Chicago’s copyediting program. She later got an associate degree in Web Development from DePaul University, Chicago.
Fagan was born in Madison, WI. In her early childhood, Fagan’s family lived in Thiensville, a small village in southeastern Wisconsin. In subsequent years her family scattered.
In 2014, Fagan moved to an aging cottage on Lake Michigan in southeastern Wisconsin. The habits of taking photographs, making art and prints, and writing have returned. She draws inspiration from her surroundings: The Lake, the animals, nature herself. Fagan’s interest in geology was rekindled as she collected Great Lakes rocks along the shoreline.
Fagan volunteered to write the monthly column “Green Talk” for the News Graphic in Ozaukee County, Wisconsin. Selections from the archives appear as essays.
