5-Year-Old With Autism Paints Stunning Masterpieces 

utism is a poorly-understood neurological disorder that can impair an individual’s ability to engage in various social interactions. But little 5-year-old Iris Grace in the UK is an excellent example of the unexpected gifts that autism can also grant – her exceptional focus and attention to detail have helped her create incredibly beautiful paintings that many of her fans (and buyers) have likened to Monet’s works.

Little Iris is slowly learning to speak, whereas most children have already begun to speak at least a few words by age 2. Along with speech therapy, her parents gradually introduced her to painting, which is when they discovered her amazing talent.

“We have been encouraging Iris to paint to help with speech therapy, joint attention and turn taking,” her mother, Arabella Carter-Johnson, explains on her website. “Then we realised that she is actually really talented and has an incredible concentration span of around 2 hours each time she paints. Her autism has created a style of painting which I have never seen in a child of her age, she has an understanding of colours and how they interact with each other.”

These are all incredible

Happy first day of autumn! Today also marks the one year anniversary of me opening up my etsy shop and actively pursuing my dreams. It’s been a whirlwind of emotions and tons of perseverance… Autumn has always been my favorite season. From the changing colors of the leaves- to the light breeze in the air. It is a very calming time for me. Reminding me that life is a cycle of birth, death and rebirth. Let go of your fears and worries. Embrace the change, do not fear it. The old must be released so that the new can enter. This is my main aesthetic behind my creative endeavors; to use organic items to embrace the cycles of birth, death and rebirth. To turn something that was once considered ugly, scary, dark, and dead into something beautiful, soothing, full of light and lively. / rant over. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart for the constant support  ❥|enter code “fallforyou” at checkout for 30% off of your entire purchase www.fernsandmossvintage.etsy.com
