Nancy Tingey talks about how she developed the Tingey Painting with Parkinsons methodology and how it gives individuals a sense of identity.
Founder of the unique Painting with Parkinsons methodology, Nancy Tingey talks how the program provides a way for people who live with Parkinson's to create their own identity through their unique artwork. She emphasises that the program is not about 'teaching' someone how to paint, but that the program allows unique expression through immersion in painting materials, and by experiencing a state of 'flow'.
