Nina Dubois is an artist, feminist, and educator living in Vermont. She graduated from Goddard College with a B.A in Arts Education and teaches at a therapeutic high school in Poultney, Vermont.
Dubois' style combines different mediums, subject matters, and techniques. She works in assemblage, painting, collage, and textile in an effort to investigate history, text, and place. Real and imagined. Personal and political.
Nina has shown her work in a number of group exhibitions including New City Galerie Burlington, Vermont, Chandler Center for the Arts Randolph, Vermont, Studio Place Arts Barre, Vermont, and Artistree Gallery South Pomfret, Vermont.
I have come to know art as the manifestation of an internal process. When I make something I am actively exploring issues from media, text, and the constructed environment, especially as it relates to women.
