Gribble has completed 18 art residencies as part of her project The Nomadic Artist, where she travels the world to reflect social and environmental changes across the globe. This multi-year artistic voyage leads her to make art in unassuming yet far-reaching places: atop glaciers near the North Pole, in a traditional Japanese paper mill in rural Japan, underwater and within the Amazon jungle, contained in the Biosphere 2 in Arizona, and inside a Habitat on an Analog Mars Mission with NASA Goddard. Awarded residencies include The Arctic Circle Residency, Vermont Studio Center, Awagami Factory, Kala Fellowship, and many more.
