First Dance – Paige O’Hara Beauty and the Beast ‘Treasures on Canvas’
First Dance is a gorgeous illustration of an iconic scene from Disney's Beauty and the Beast, by Disney's own Paige O'Hara.
O'Hara is widely known as Disney's heroine, Belle, in the critically acclaimed, Oscar-winning animated film Beauty and the Beast. Paige’s love of painting began when she was a child. Her father was an architect – so drawing and painting was very much a way of life. Although Paige found much success with her singing, painting was always her escape. Much of her time was spent studying and learning from the masters – Turner, Sargent, Da Vinci – and although she does not have formal training, her years of practice are evident. When she first moved to New York, she helped support herself by selling her works on the street. As her stage career flourished, she painted for herself.
