The paintings of Iris Grace are incredible for a number of reasons, the least of which is that she was diagnosed with autism in 2011. No more than five years of age, Iris Grace has found a therapeutic release in this form of art, which is full of dreamy visions of soft pastels. As those inspired by flowers and light, her work is uplifting and inspirational.

Sharing Iris Grace's art to raise awareness of her condition as well as help families in similar situations, her parents have found a way to make her days go by more pleasantly. Design Taxi writes, "Each time she gets to paint, she beams with excitement and joy, and her mood gets lifted up—it also serves as a way of expressing herself freely as well."
