I love painting. I didn’t go to art school (although I’ve always wanted to), so I studied how to paint on my own. I find it interesting that, what you learn in life, you can also apply in art. Which is why, for my last post as Preview’s celebrity guest editor this month, I want to share with you two paintings that are dear to my heart. I feel like both symbolize a particular phase in my life.

The first one is something I painted about five years ago. As you can see, it has a perfect face and I used perfect strokes. The way I interpret this, perhaps I had an obsession to be perfect back in 2011. When I was younger, I thought everything had to be perfect, and so it reflected in my artwork.

I realized all this a few years later and maybe you can notice the difference in one of my most recent paintings. For some reason, I love drawing naked women. It does have a bit of a cryptic message. I used rough strokes on this one, and it’s clearly not as perfect—because in real life, women aren’t always flawless, thin, and impossibly pretty. I’ve learned to embrace the fact that imperfection in itself can also be beautiful.
