I can't say that I'm the biggest fan of Amy Winehouse, but she definitely has a unique personality. These beautiful paintings by Sophie Varela remind me of Winehouse, not for the train wreck that she is, but for the beautiful style she unapologetically represents.
Born in 1981, Sophie Varela lives and works in Paris, France. After getting her diploma in Art and Multimedia in 2004, she decided to become an independent freelance illustrator. Varela uses traditional techniques, including watercolor, acrylic, oil, and pencil.
