5-Year Old Painting Prodigy Sells Mesmerizing Galaxy Paintings, Donates Over $750 to Charity
It is often said that artists, specifically painters, can create worlds out of nothing. But one five-year-old painting prodigy who lives in Australia can create galaxies, and she’s not even in school yet.
Cassie Gee was just three when her mom got her into painting. At sa young age, she immediately developed a passion for the craft, and soon began creating magnificent works of art.
A true natural talent, Gee sold more than 20 paintings and made $1,000 just one month after picking up a brush.
Her mother, pharmacist Linda Gee, said she introduced her active toddler to painting so she would “settle down.”
“She’s always on the go, like most kids,” Mrs. Gee told the Daily Telegraph in 2015. “I just needed her to sit still for a bit.”
The proud mom, who also paints as a hobby, handed her daughter some of her art supplies one day. “I gave her the canvas and the paints, and said, ‘Go do something’. She came back with it and I said, ‘Oh my god, that’s better than mine.’”
Now at age five, the art prodigy from Sydney has so far sold over 100 paintings to clients from all over the world. What’s even more impressive is that she donates a portion of her earnings to various international charities — she has so far given away over $750. She also donates paintings for fundraiser auctions.
Her website, CassieSwirls, describes her style as “free and uninhibited.” With an imaginative mind like hers, she is able to create such powerful visuals through brush strokes.
“She chooses a combination of acrylic paint, resin and glitter to create faraway landscapes and galaxies using only a fork or skewer and her hands,” the site explains.
