From fish to tech art: How outside interests can inspire your work


What pushes us to create? In this talk Nina shares their personal journey: how art helped them express themself as an autistic adult, and how you can apply a deeper purpose to your work based on the things you love. We often overlook art as a form of communication especially for people who struggle to use words. Not only can you convey stories visually but getting your message across adds an additional layer of purpose to what you create, driving you forward.


• There is a nugget of sincerity when you put things you love into what you do. It's not just empty work, but a deeper meaning that gives it a story.
• My work tells a story of someone who struggled and overcame that though self expression.
• If you find yourself struggling to find motivation, find why you started, what drives you forward.
