Iris Grace Halmshaw, a 3-year old girl from Market Harborough, England, creates colorful impressionistic watercolour paintings. She is autistic and does not speak. Her parents first handed her a paintbrush hoping to help her connect with others. Now works by Iris Grace, who started painting as therapy, have been selling for up to £830. Her first painting was sold at a charity auction. Profits from other sales of her paintings go toward her art supplies and therapy.
The family are hoping to arrange an exhibition in London to give Iris Grace’s paintings a wider audience.
