Kapuso star Heart Evangelista-Escudero has practically grown up in the spotlight, with viewers witnessing her transformation from playing teenage roles to more mature characters, such as in the sexy comedy series Juan Happy Love Story, wherein she stars opposite Kapuso Drama King Dennis Trillo.

But in recent years, Heart has also displayed a different facet of her persona – that of a visual artist – as evidenced by a series of successful solo painting exhibits both in and out of the country.

Her foray into the art world has been well-received, with her paintings being sold out at her exhibits and clients clamoring for more of Love Marie, the actress’ real name, which she chooses to use as an artist.

However, the talented star also does not limit herself to painting on canvas, having ventured into painting vibrant images on luxury handbags.

Herein lies her dirty secret. Art inspiration can come from many different sources, but for Heart, it was actually an oil stain from French fries that got her started painting on bags. She revealed that she had decided to paint on one of Hermés bags in order to conceal the stain.

She never expected that her friends would immediately love the outcome and request her to paint on their bags as well. With the increasing praise garnered by her hand-painted creations, it’s no wonder that they have already gained international attention.

And just recently, the Kapuso actress revealed that she will be staging an exhibit on September 3 for all the Hermés bags she has painted.
