Siobhan McBride currently lives in Staten Island. She received her MFA in painting from the University of Pennsylvania in 2005. Her paintings are descriptions of strange yet quotidian experiences, things caught in the corner of the eye and an attempt to conjure slippery memories. She was an artist in residence at Lower Manhattan Cultural Council’s Workspace Program, Jentel Artist Residency, the Vermont Studio Center, the Roswell Artist in Residence Program and Yaddo three times. In July 2019, she will be attending the Sam and Adele Golden Foundation Artist Residency in upstate NY. Her work has been exhibited at Tai Modern (Santa Fe, NM), DC Moore (NYC), NurtureArt (Brooklyn, NY), Roswell Museum and Art Center and the University of Maine Museum of Art in Bangor, ME.
