6-Year-Old Autistic Artist Just Sold Her Painting To Angelina Jolie

Published 5 years ago

Prepare you heart to be warmed… And then meet Iris Grace – a 6-year-old painter, diagnosed with autism and her therapy cat friend Thula.

Our friends at Bored Panda have been covering Iris’ and Thula’s amazing story since the beginning, helping to spread their message – that different is brilliant. Iris is an inspiring example of how autism can be fought with friends and art. She has been drawing these detailed paintings for over a year now, and in the process has been developing other skills like talking and reading.

The little artists’ duo has been noticed by many, the latest being Hollywood star Angelina Jolie, who just bought one of Iris’ paintings.
