Tangiene grew up in Edmonton, Alberta and obsessively drew and painted folksy people and animals from her imagination. Discovering in university that it was too difficult to focus on painting just anything from her imagination, she began only painting and drawing from photographs. She graduated with a BFA from Emily Carr University in Vancouver. Post-graduation work includes abstract and portrait drawing, social media experimentation, curating, photo documentation, soft crafts and dog humour. In 2020, she participated in a residency with Eastern Edge Gallery in St. John’s and received a new/emerging artist grant from ArtsNL. Her next ambition is to make larger scale paintings of wild and unusual animals in sublime Newfoundland landscapes. She currently resides in Corner Brook, NL with her handsome husband, cute puppy and sweet kitten.
