Autistic girl draws masterpieces from 3 years. How the cat helped her
Iris Grace Holmeshaw lives in England in Leicestershire. The girl was diagnosed with autism. Neurological disorder did not prevent her from taking place as an artist. When she was 3 years old, the art community found out about her. Her works are sold for £ 1,500, and photocopies for £ 200-300. Iris even organized a solo exhibition in London. Iris is now 9 years old and a small artist known around the world. So, one of the owners of the exhibit was Angelina Jolie. A filmmaker even shot a video about the girl, which can be found at the end of the page. It is surprising that no one was engaged in art lessons with her. The story of the girl is amazing and inspiring. She learned to draw herself. She has a unique style. Looking at the pictures, you can see the surrounding reality through the eyes of a girl. Interestingly, the development of Iris was largely influenced by the cat Fula.
Autism in children can be detected at an early age. So it was in the situation of Iris. Parents learned about the girl’s problem when the baby was 2 years old. Doctors tried to help and do everything in their power. After a series of tests, the verdict was announced that progress was unlikely. She is unlikely to be able to talk and communicate with others. Arabella – the girl’s mother was in shock, she asked what they should do now. The doctor replied: you can try everything you want, if only it would not hurt. Autism in children often manifests itself as difficulties in social adaptation, even with family members. The girl was very anxious. She reacted violently to peers and adults. My grandmother, grandfather, and even father would not be allowed into the house. For this reason, for the benefit of her daughter and her peace of mind, dad had to leave. He helps mother and girl at a distance, writes miloserdie.ru.
How “Patience” appeared
The painting “Patience” in the translation of “Patience”. It all started with the usual Arabella pattern. Mom drew a simple man: legs, pens. My daughter was delighted. She began to try to finish the picture. The next day, the woman went to the store. I bought paints, an easel, brushes and all that could be required. In the house allocated a room for creativity. The baby tried to make the first drawing, but the experience upset her. She didn’t like the paint spreading on the easel. Next time, mom laid the paper on the table. The girl began to work again. She liked that now the paints lay down as she needs, and do not flow down.
Painting “Explosions of Color” in the translation of “Explosions of color.” She dipped her brush in blue paint and began to make strokes, spray bright drops. Mom praised the baby and removed the sheet to dry. Then she took it out again, offering to continue drawing. The woman did not limit the girl’s freedom of action and allowed her to choose the very next color for the picture. Iris took yellow, then took white. The result was an extraordinary picture. Impressive. As if the sea trembles with waves of foam. You won’t even think that this was painted by a little girl. The author is like an experienced artist who has been confidently holding a brush in his hands for several years.
The painting “The Tale of Green” in the translation of “The Tale of Green.” The girl has an understanding of colors and how they fit together, how they will look when mixed. Her first work, Arabella called “Patience.” This word is ideally suited to this work and the stage of creation. Mom posted the creation on a social network, where the photo collected a lot of “like” marks, and subscribers noted the creative beginning in the girl.
The painting “Under the Sea” in the translation “Underwater”. The woman did not expect such a reaction, because to every mother it seems that her child is capable. But if other people were able to discern the beauty in the drawing, then that means it really is. One woman even wanted to buy a picture. At the exhibition, her photocopy was sold for 830 pounds.
I see the world, I paint the world
The idea to display the paintings of the little artist came to the head of the former classmate of the mother. She followed Arabella’s tape and was delighted with Iris’s work. The woman worked in the art industry and offered to participate in the exhibition of aspiring artists. Mother was dumbfounded, because this is a little girl with a disorder of psychological development. The doubts of the woman were dispelled after the objection of the ex-classmate that the girl was really a talented artist, and added: “I thought you knew.”
From that moment everything changed, but not for the girl (she also worked), but for those around her. People were able to see unusual paintings, plunge into the world of fantasy, looking at them. They seem to convey the state of mind and mood of the author. Now mom rarely sells originals. They are very dear to the heart and can be represented at exhibitions. Those who wish to acquire photocopies and share the desire of the mother to preserve the work of Iris. The picture above is “Dancing in Snowflakes” in the translation “Dancing in Snowflakes”.
