‘I don’t care enough about what people think of me to conform to anything’. Amy Winehouse.

I used this quote and others as part of my portrait to highlight all the negative comments and attention that Amy dealt with. It is her freethinking that inspires me. I am also inspired by Amy’s unique sense of style and fashion. She spoke her mind and for me this is freedom.

I think that WW1 has had an important impact on women and society. After the war, there were huge changes such as votes for women and women becoming more independent.
