Kathy Tangney, my bio:
2012 was quite a year of exciting projects for me! Belonging to groups such as the Merrimack River
Painters, Manchester Artists Association, Womens' Caucus for Art and Tong Ren
Healing gives me the opportunity to paint, learn, grow and exhibit my work all
over the country.
My watercolors are bold and full of the emotion I
was feeling while painting. I paint daily, as my therapy of sorts. One
day I may paint a wild ocean scene, the next a tranquil mill building;
all the while incorporating elements of Art & design. I generally
have 2 or 3 paintings of different sizes going at once. I've become
confident in handling the tools of my trade; yet get excited because
watercolors provide never ending surprises for me. It's almost 30 years
now using watercolors and I have to say I've gone from painting tight,
small and controlled to loose, large, free and playful. I received my
Art Education degree at Notre Dame, Manchester NH. I've taken many Art
courses at New Hampshire Art Institute and continue to study with New
Castle artist Dustan Knight. I visit Art museums and galleries
frequently to enhance my artistic senses.
In 2008, I won Chico's 25th Anniversary Jacket Design Contest. Chico's
made 25,000 of the jackets by copying my "Rose Peacock"
watercolor painting for the fabric. As a result, the Boys & Girls Club of Manchester NH received
$75,000, all of the sales proceeds!
For many years I taught Art in NH public schools, and currently offer workshops and private classes.
This year my watercolors were exhibited at:
Law Center, Concord NH; Magnet Art Project, Minor Threat Pop Up
Gallery, Concord NH, Framers Market, Manchester NH; White Flag Pop Up
Gallery, Manchester NH; Sage Gallery, Manchester NH; Hatfield Gallery,
Manchester NH; and various businesses in New England.
As a Tong Ren Healer, I participate in Tong Ren group healing sessions in Quincy & Haverhill MA and Manchester, NH and conduct weekly Tong Ren open sessions.
Tom Tam who developed Tong Ren is truly changing worldwide healing! Tong Ren combines Eastern healing beautifully with Western diagnostic tools. I have been cured of multiple diseases, illnesses by "tappers" trained by Tom Tam. For more info see my Tong Ren page.
I was Tong Ren certified by Tom Tam in Quincy MA in 2007. We may be crazy, but not stupid! See www.tongrenstation.com
On Jan. 31, 2012 I was lucky enough to be a guest on Andrea Klim, Astrologist's, "Turn to the Stars" cable TV show. You can see my fun interview with Andrea at www.turntothestars.com
My motto is to love my work,
and work hard for what I love!
Thanks for looking!
