Van Gogh, Monet and Picasso are probably most recognized paint artist in the universe. The artwork of 3-year-old Iris Grace Halmshaw really stole our hearts!
Unfortunately, Iris is autistic and can’t speak. The presence of other children unnerve and distress her. Thankfully, art has soothed and calmed her – an amazing source of psychological therapy.
“When Iris diagnosed with autism, the main key was to find something she loved to do,” says Iris’s mom, Arabella Carter-Johnson. She did try to take Iris to the playground, but it had been disastrous.
Iris refuses to use an easel and prefers laying the paper flat on a table while painting. A private collector has bought two of her original works for £1,500 each (gross amount of RM7500). A solo exhibition is recently planned in London for auction.
