Nora McBride is an artist living and working in southern Colorado in the San Luis Valley. Her personal work is influenced by imagery and symbols that have been absorbed into her subconscious over the course of her life. Her practice includes drawing, painting, murals, printmaking, and embroidery. She believes in art’s ability to process, transform, and translate our individual experiences into personal and collective healing, growth, and connection.
She teaches drawing and printmaking at Adams State University in Alamosa, CO. and has shown work nationally in Iowa, Oregon, Colorado, and New Mexico. In 2020 she collaborated with members of the Boys and Girls Club of the San Luis Valley, and staff and volunteers at the Rio Grande Farm Park to create a site specific, public mural installation that celebrates community in the San Luis Valley.
