- Heart Evangelista expanded her ‘Love Marie’ paintings from canvas to handbags last 2015
- One of her recent clients is Jinkee Pacquiao
- Jinkee is satisfied with what Heart painted on her two Hermes bags
MANILA, Philippines – After Heart Evangelista expanded her ‘Love Marie’ paintings from a canvas to a handbag, she was commissioned by several high profile personalities to paint on their luxury handbags as well.
The recent one who was added on Heart’s growing list of satisfied clients is Jinkee Pacquiao.
The wife of Sen. Manny Pacquiao tapped Heart to paint on two of her Hermes bags.
Earlier this July, Heart shared on her Instagram account a photo of Jinkee’s dark brown Hermes bag which she just finished painting with birds.
On Wednesday, July 27, Jinkee posted on Instagram a photo of her Hermes Rose Sakura Herbag which Heart painted with flowers.
Heart, who has proven time and time again her talent as an artist, shared that she took a risk by painting on her Hermes Birkin bag with an acrylic for leather last year.
GMA News Online quoted her as saying: “It was a bit scary to paint on the bag, parang ‘Oh my gosh, am I really doing this?’ but it looks good so parang what I said, ‘What a lil ouch can do, ‘di ba?”
She liked the outcome of what she did so she decided to paint her other luxury bags as well.
She is accepting commissions for hand-painted bags and she revealed she gets paid about P60,000 – P80,000 per bag, but she does it for free for her friends.
Aside from her artworks and acting, the actress launched her book, “This is Me, Love Marie”, last year.
The book is filled with Heart’s simple, helpful makeup tricks, easy skincare how-tos, and confessions on life and love.
