Born and raised in Austin, TX , Nora studied Textile Design at the Fashion Institute of Technology before moving back home to pursue a Masters in Art Education. Nora works primarily with watercolors, often combined with marbling techniques, to explore resist processes on paper and canvas. Details are created with masking fluid and painted in layers of watercolor before the painting is sometimes marbled and the resist is removed to reveal the white surface. Nora finds inspiration through researching techniques, symbolism and patterns found in antique textiles and folk art. Her work also explores symmetry and attempts to highlight the commonalities that connect craft traditions from diverse cultures.
