Embroidery stitched directly through a vinyl record sleeve.

This is Whitney Houston's second studio album, released in 1987. This album was released when I was in High School and while it wasn’t my style at the time I truly appreciated her voice. I became a fan later in her career and I, along with the rest of the world, mourned her untimely death. The album features her in a tank top over a splashy 80’s background. I used a few unique techniques in this piece. The background is created using 4 layers of grey wool thread in an abstract pattern. Whitney was created with over 40 layers of rayon thread stitched with very small stitches to blend the colors. I used a few appliqués in this piece as well. Her shirt, lips, and the side panel were all created with glitter fabric appliqué and then embellished with additional stitches. The logo was stitched directly through the album cover.
