Meet Iris Grace, a 5-year-old girl from Leicestershire who has a remarkable talent for creating beautiful paintings. Grace has autism, a disorder that affects how a person make sense of the world around them. The condition impairs a person's social interaction and how they relate to and communicate with others. Grace, who was diagnosed with condition in 20111, started painting as a way to help with her speech therapy. She is now starting to speak and express herself through movement and art. As Grace began painting, her parents Arabella Carter-Johnson and Peter-Jon Halmshaw discovered her exceptional talent, noticing that she created a style of painting that they had "never seen in a child of her age."
"She has an outstanding colours and how they interact with each other," Arabella said. "She beams with excitement and joy when I get out the paints; it lifts her mood every time."
