I find it quite amazing how some people can reinvent themselves, slam the door firmly shut on a negative past and go full throttle into the unknown with a renewed positivity.
NeSpoon is my proof. 5 years ago she did exactly that, kissed goodbye to a 9-5 lifestyle and forged her way into the very ‘snooty’ and ‘clicky world of the Arts.
She embraced her dreams and passions, stood aside from her vulnerability and let her beautiful artwork speak for itself.
She is self-taught and considers the streets to be her gallery.
Only the good and brave dare to do that and if you ask me there is no better platform to showcase your work. It is the place where the whole world can stop, notice and appreciate it for free. She says herself ‘I am now on the right side of life’
My daughter makes me play this piece of music, composed by Michael Kamen, every day on the school run. Today I would like to dedicate it to NeSpoons 5th Re-birth-day, because she is a sort of Robin Hood; one who takes the streets from the rich and gives her Art to the poor.
I look forward to celebrating with you tomorrow ;)
