In December of 2011, Iris Grace Halmshaw was diagnosed with Autism. Iris’ parents say she rarely speaks and that interacting with others can be challenging, but is able to expresses herself through movement and art. 

You can keep up with Iris’ latest developments on her website irisgracepainting.com. On the website you can find live auctions of Iris’ paintings for sale along with greetings cards and postcards. Iris also has a rapidly growing Facebook page here and on online gift store on Zazzle. All proceeds from the paintings and prints go towards more art materials and her ongoing therapies and treatments.
