At Five, Iris Grace Paints Better Than My College Art Professor!

At age two, Iris Grace was nonverbal, unable to manage eye-contact, and she wasn’t able to successfully interact with other children — Iris was diagnosed with autism.

However, three years later, her parents have discovered something incredible: Iris has the artistic talent of someone well beyond her years. As a painter, Iris is a creative prodigy.

Many artists don’t get recognition until well after their death — however, Iris has ended up working backwards. Her beautiful works of art are being recognized around the planet, arguably because of her young age.

Have a look at the video to see Iris Grace’s work for yourself.
