Celebrity Portrait

Ashley Judd

For the next 8 days, I will be sharing a different celebrity portrait that I have painted, along with their celebrity photo.

Today, I’m posting my portrait of Ashley Judd. The daughter of country music singer Naomi Judd, her grandfather is of Sicilian decent, and she was raised in Kentucky, where she spent most of her young life. Ashley attended 13 schools before college, tried modeling, and had her film debut in 1992, with a small role in Kuffs. She went on to appear in over 30 films. Double Jeopardy is still my personal favorite.

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.
