In celebration of Emma Watson's 21st birthday last month, renowned artist Mark Demsteader created a collection of portraits featuring the actress.

The Hermione Granger actress originally planned on purchasing one of Mr. Demsteader's pieces when the tables were turned and she became the subject of his latest collection.

The 34 portraits featuring Ms. Watson will be exhibited at the Panter & Hall Gallery on Bury Street in London beginning June 15, 2011. The stunning portraits use different mediums, including charcoal and gouache drawings, ink paintings and oils.

Per Ms. Watson's request, 10% of all sale proceeds from the portraits will be donated to CAMFED International, a charity which supports the education of girls and economic empowerment of young women in Africa.

A preview of some of the portraits can be seen at EmmaWatson.com.

Really lovely pictures! Emma has become an extraordinary young woman. I think her efforts with fair trade and now CAMFED are very impressive. CAMFED’s work for young African girls is invaluable. WELL DONE Emma!

Nice paintings.

I was going to take Leaky to task for not knowing that the plural of ‘medium’ is ‘media,’ but I see now that you cut and pasted the paragraph from Ms. Watson’s website. So her webmaster is the actual culprit.

@WeenyOwl, the plural of medium is actually media or mediums; both are valid.

I think this artist really captured the essence of Emma. Because no matter what stunning pieces of clothing she’s wearing it is always her face that draws you in. And I think these pieces reflect that beautifully. Lovely artwork. Plus I have never heard of CAMFED what an incredible organisation! I really really love it. Good choice Emma
