Little is known about autism, but the incredible gifts that some with this condition possess is outright astounding.
Five-year-old Iris Grace from the UK is an excellent example of someone who possesses these gifts. Her beautiful paintings have many of her fans (and buyers) comparing them to Monet’s works.
Iris is still learning how to speak. 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. “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.”
