For the next 14 days, I will be sharing a different celebrity portrait that I have painted, along with their celebrity photo.
Today, I’m posting Paris Hilton, great-granddaughter of Conrad Hilton, founder of Hilton Hotels. She began her modeling career when she signed with Donald Trump‘s modeling agency, Trump Model Management. Since then, she’s had TV roles, released a book, a fragrance, among other endorsements. Paris is “famous for being famous.”
About the artist…
In her years of practice, Italian-American artist Holly Picano has explored beauty and desire through images of female faces. Studying Visual Communication from the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale, Picano incorporates a commercial feel to her images of women. One of the artist’s most notable pieces is a red headed Ms. Behave, created for the Peachy Canyon Winery wine label. The recipient of an Artist Enhancement Grant from the State of Florida, Picano continues her commitment to the arts through her paintings of female faces.
