A Journey of Self Transformation

Dr. James Kriley

Dr. Randy Bolton

As a result of social and family expectations I was pushed to pursue a lifestyle where my passion and talent for the Arts did not have a place. Nomad School is a personal and artistic research project in which I took a life changing experience of living in a nomad community, to develop a body of work that would tell the story of my personal transformation into the artist that I always wanted to be. I used journals and sketchbooks as my primary personal research tools and read through all my notes from six years of traveling back and forth between South America (I am originally from Colombia) and the United States, looking for hints of moments of discovery and breakthroughs. I produced ten pen and ink drawings and four poems which were displayed in a multimedia show that also included a storytelling performance and a series of short slide shows in Missoula, Montana. The creation of Nomad School was the critical moment for me to begin identifying myself as a multimedia artist.
