Sarah Ferguson has had a varied career as an entrepreneur, having been a children’s book author, film producer and romance novelist.
She’s even sold blenders on TV and was a Weight Watchers ambassador.
Her latest venture is another radical departure.
Last week, the Duchess of York launched a digital art gallery showcasing her own spoken poetry overlaid with a visual interpretation of other artists’ verses.

She has teamed up with Nifty Gateway, a company owned by multimillion-dollar US tech entrepreneurs Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss, who founded a precursor to Facebook.
Nifty Gateway sells NFTs, or non-fungible tokens – digital products that allow collectors to invest in digital art just like they would buy a painting. They can be bought and sold and each has a unique code to prevent it from being copied.
Fergie said she wants to “expand my passion for storytelling through art,” adding, “As technology advances, the traditional aesthetic can find new life in this contemporary viral world.”
In her digital artwork Gateway To The Self, viewers look at a series of paintings while the Duchess and British actor Laurence Fuller recite the poem.

In a soothing voice, the Duchess reads: “Lost and afraid, sometimes tearful,
‘Use your compass,
“Now you are not alone
‘Finally no more abandoned feeling,
“We are integrated and fed up, we are reorienting ourselves, relying on harmonization.”
In another of her digital artworks, May We Speak, Fergie asks, “Do you think you’re awake?”
Fergie spoke about her NFTs in a Twitter Space last week and read a poem she wrote when the Queen died: “A rainbow appears so clear over the tower,
“A sign for all of us, we must stand tall,
“Whenever you see a rainbow appear, you know I’m near, never fear. I may not be there physically, but in your heart I will never be afraid. Look within and you will see the colors of my rainbow wrapping around it, my love for you abounds.’
