LOS ANGELES, Feb. 6 (UPI) -- We already know that Emma Watson has other artistic and intellectual pursuits besides acting. She attended Brown University in 2011 and once told Marie Claire UK, "I paint and I draw and I write."

This week, one of the 23-year-old actress' supposed paintings surfaced online. The colorful work shows Watson with a camera in hand.

Reddit user immigat found an excerpt from a 2011 Vogue interview with Amanda Foreman that seemed to describe the painting as belonging to Watson.

As Emma takes me on a tour of her house, the extraordinary depth and breadth to her talents become obvious. Every room is framed around a beautiful artifact—a piece of furniture or fabric picked up at a flea market in Paris or Los Angeles—and her artworks show that she can both paint and draw exquisitely. One picture stands out: It is a self-portrait of Emma holding a camera. The lens is aimed menacingly at the viewer, like the barrel of a gun, a neat illustration of what we had just experienced at the Tate.

Foreman confirmed Wednesday that the portrait she wrote about is the one in the picture.

Watson, who just signed on for Alejandro Amenabar's thriller, Regression, guest-edited the latest issue of Wonderland magazine -- the one where J.K. Rowling's regrets about Ron and Hermione's relationship startled and upset many fans.
