Meet Nathan. He Quit his Successful Law Career to Make Art Out of LEGO

lego artist

Meet Nathan.

He quit a successful career in corporate law to follow his passion for Lego bricks.

Sounds crazy but it’s true.

You might be wondering ‘How the heck did he do that?’

Well, like many dream careers, he started off by simply following his passion.

“After a long day in the law firm, I needed some kind of outlet. I would draw, paint and one day I thought maybe I can sculpt using lego bricks!”. He says.

Nathan took his passion and created a website so he could show others his art. When he started to get so many visitors on his site that it crashed, he clearly remembers making a decision to go for it:

“I left the law firm behind, to play with bricks full time!”

But it wasn’t always a smooth ride. Instead of supporting him on his journey to fulfill his dreams, Nathan was surprised by the reaction from those around him.

“The reaction from friends & family was interesting”, said Nathan. “There were some people who were a little negative about it and thought I was crazy.”

Like most innovators, it took a while for everybody else to catch on to the genius in what he was doing.

Nathan’s journey is an incredible one where he followed his passion, intuition and dreams, and it paid off.

He chose not to listen to the naysayers and instead to listen to his own inner voice and be led by doing work that he LOVED.

This is possible for everyone. Perhaps not always in as dramatic a way as this, but it really is possible.

And as Nathan points out:

“You don’t have to find one career path, there are many ways to get to where you wanna go.”

So if you have something that you have been doing in your spare time, a hobby or passion that you just LOVE doing, why not do some more of it? See where it leads? Follow the white rabbit down the rabbit hole…you never know where it might lead.

But you won’t know if you don’t try.

I am an American abstract artist that creates vivid scenes that spark the imagination and creative sides of people. This story inspires me because I too left behind the business world to pursue art full time. There is nothing else in the world I love more then creating! Great post!


Nice insight Zoe. Thanks.


Cheers for having the courage and trust to surrender to your dreams and desires.
What a gift!


My biggest passions in life are writing, circus arts, yoga, travelling and the conservation of birds – so I spend time on all of them as much as I can – trying to thread them into a new income is interesting! I recently started writing about them on my blog and it feels good, like I’m putting my loves out there…hopefully they will come back to me with opportunities!
