Description



Today’s episode is a fun treat for creatives, lost post-grads, and anyone feeling ‘stuck’ in their path. We have on experimental audio-visual artist and full-time web developer Nomi, creator at “Piquetures” on YouTube. We talked about how Nomi works creative projects for 2-3 hours per day, why it’s okay to take a gap year if you’re feeling lost, and the power of collaborating with other creatives.


Nomi was featured in the wrap-up of the Dream Life Series as a success story, so it was wonderful to catch up and learn more about her story and growth as a true artist of life!


In this episode we explore:



  • 1:30 – Nomi’s creative “coming-of-age” story: Molecular biology, a gap year, and the coding bootcamp that changed everything

  • 8:42 – Thoughts on feeling stuck with your college degree + exploring as many different paths as possible

  • 11:36 – Identifying as an artist first: Why Nomi thinks of her 9-5 as “school” and artwork as her “job”

  • 15:57 – The Art of Travel: An art retreat / road trip that led to Nomi’s proudest project yet

  • 18:47 – Making YouTube friends + How to connect with creatives through collaboration

  • 22:20 – Nomi’s daily habits, balancing work and art & making time for creative projects

  • 27:55 – Advice for young, aspiring artist who feel like they’re running out of time

  • 31:24 – Q&A: Nomi’s dream life, recommended resource, life-changing habit, best received advice, and favorite part about life
