F@%* your PASSION

BY AMBER-JEAN NEALE
@ PECHAKUCHA 20X20 AS PART OF KICK OVER THE STATUES AT HASSELL ON MAR 02, 2017

Amber-Jean Neale shares with us how she found her passion - once she was given a pearl of wisdom of where to go looking for it - "you already know what your passion is, you are just ignoring it, it is what you do when you have a spare five minutes in a day" (this defintely made the audience at the Marhc 2017 PechaKucha Night in London think).

So Amber took up tattooing; and what a fine job she is doing! 

Amber as an artist think's it is the biggest compliment that someone wants your artwork on their body - too true!
