About "Amy Winehouse"
Amy had such an impact on so many teenagers lives during her career as an artist. When I read about her, and what she gone through, I felt that there was more than just a message that could be carried over. How many people battle with abuse, and she tried to get clean on her drug abuse.
14/09/1983 – 23/07/2011 XXIII IX MCMLXXXIII TO XXIII VII MMXI was an English singer and songwriter. Her 2003 debut album, Frank, was critically successful in the UK and was nominated for the Mercury Prize. Her 2006 follow-up album, Back to Black, led to 6 Grammy nominations and 5 wins, tying the then record for the most wins by a female artist in a single night, and made her the first British female to win 5 Grammys, including 3 of the "Big Four": Best New Artist, Record of the Year, Song of the Year.
In 2007 she won a Brit Award for Best British Female Artist; she had also been nominated for Best British Album. She won the Ivor Novello Award 3 times: once in 2004 for Best Contemporary Song for "Stronger Than Me", once in 2007 for Best Contemporary Song for "Rehab", and once in 2008 for Best Song Musically and Lyrically for "Love Is a Losing Game". Winehouse died of alcohol poisoning on 23/07/2011.
Her album Back to Black posthumously became the UK's best-selling album of the 21st century, at that point. In 2012, Winehouse was listed at number 26 on VH1's 100 Greatest Women In Music.
She was hospitalised for what was reported as an overdose of heroin, ecstasy, cocaine, ketamine and alcohol.
The bird & leaves is Amy’s willingness to share and to give. Throughout her life Winehouse donated her money, music and time to many charities, particularly those concerned with children.
The butterfly is one of her tattoos; indicate her freedom she was seeking for through the period that she was addicted to the drugs. The cross and feather is part of Amy dedicated to her memory.
The broken bottle resembles the broken life caused by alcohol & drug abuse, causing tears & blood in the end.
The cards have hard line and solid posture to resemble with her friends and family, which was hoping that she would overcome the problems she was having. Her whole life was a gamble; all the other characters indicate this. Words were taken from lyrics to assemble this picture on completion.

I want to create a sense of scrutiny and inquisitiveness, for the spectator to think outside the box, to detect more than the depiction in front of him. I crave to connect to people in a divine manner, to make way to self discovery while exploring beyond the palpable.
My first painting was done in 2012, imminent from a dream. I always loved to draw and fooling around with material paint, but never gave thought of doing it on canvas - or if I am honest to myself.....Had the guts to do so
My inspiration is an emotional response to what I experience in life. By directing it on canvas I am able to portray what I experience to a more universal language. I find symbolism a great tool to portray my inner feelings, and yet it still enables me to disguise the harshness of some emotions.
The symbolism of color as well as the objects used in all the portraits' enhance the meaning beyond the palpable, and only after realising what the true meaning are, beyond what you see, you will be able to understand the intrigue in the true objective.
Every canvas I do is based on a specific person, or life experience. While I was discovering what I wanted to do, I distanced myself from the portraits, selecting other people to be represented. I looked at famous people, and rather portrayed them, than showing myself. It was only when I became more relaxed and gained more confidence that I was willing to bring it closer to home.
