SEMINOLE - Artist Carrie Boucher always dreamed of owning a traveling art studio on a bus.

Always a bit of a nomad, in her mind she’d wander the country while creating her art. Each day she’d wake up in a new city; each day she’d sell her work on the side of the road to make ends meet.

These days, the project has become a reality. But the NOMAD Studio - that stands for Neighborhood-Oriented Mobile Art & Design Studio - has taken on a much larger scope and focuses more on the community’s needs than her own. Now, Boucher’s goal is to take her mobile art studio concept into community events throughout not just the Tampa Bay region, but the entire state, and to provide art projects and lessons for everyone, no matter the age or skill level, along the way.

“This is not my project is the way I look at it,” she said. “There was a point early on where I thought it was my project. But it became apparent to me as I started talking to people about it that it’s a lot bigger than me.”

Boucher, a 1992 Seminole High School graduate, attended the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and spent a decade in the Windy City. She worked as a metalsmith, and also designed windows and did product photography for a small downtown boutique.
