Disney Legend Paige O’Hara, voice of Belle in the 1991 classic “Beauty and the Beast” (not to mention the animated sequels) and in the recent “Ralph Breaks the Internet,” has another talent – painting. You’ll have a chance to see her as part of EPCOT’s International Festival of the Arts later this month.
If you’ve seen a Beauty and the Beast painting at this year’s Festival of the Arts, there’s a chance it was O’Hara painting the iconic character she first gave voice to. She has also taken on a few of the other Disney Princesses.
Paige was in EPCOT to help get the festival started this weekend and even worked on a painting of Gaston right in the France pavilion among the Bouquinistes. She also gives a preview of the work she’ll have on display when she appears at the festival.
Paige will appear at this year’s festival Jan. 24 – 27 from 12-2 p.m. and 4-6 p.m., daily.
O’Hara has Florida ties, she was born in Fort Lauderdale, and has been acting since she was 4 years old. You can see more of Paige’s artwork on her website.
