Amy Winehouse In Cut Paper

Today we welcome guest artist erin k. bailey a.k.a ekb* She is an artist & a DJ, visit her at ekb*

In her words:

I have been a long time fan of Amy Winehouse, and was so sad to hear of her passing. I had been working with cut paper designs, and I decided to attempt to do her portrait to honor her life and music in my own way. I used one of the frame designs for the background on the Songbird Cartridge for its vintage feel, because much of her music and style was influenced by artists from the 50’s and 60’s. I hand cut Amy’s portrait during a 4 day, labor of love cut-a-thon.

My other art pieces can be view at ekb* or find me on Facebook and if you are curious about the music I mix visit ekb* over at Sound Cloud for free downloads!
