You can email me, Arabella at irisgracepainting@yahoo.com to register your interest in Originals and I will add you to our list which we send out emails to in regards to auctions.

  18. I got an inspiration and impression after Iris’s painting.

    Actually I am a Korean and also have a sister with autism and mental retardation.
    She is 28 years old but still act like children.

    I would like to show my sister another world.
    Could you please help me?
    I hope your reply.

    • Hi, I would suggest to observe her closely, try and see what she likes the most, her interests, passions, what makes her happy and use those things to interact with your sister. There are so many different therapies but we have found that by using the person’s interests you have the greatest chance of engaging them. Music and art can help immensely and so can animals. I wish I could offer further help but without understanding and knowing your sister its not easy to know how to help. Best Wishes, Arabella

      • Thank you for asking a mail.

        Let me introduce my sister.
        She got a car accident when she was 5 years old.

        I think it makes her happy when she paints.
        Also She likes to listen a music her favourite.
        (not a pop or trendy music.. very old song even though I don’t know)

        So my mother has used the time for my sister’s education.

        But Korean tend to feel a pity to the handicapped people. it occurs the family
        feel small in the society.
        sometimes it gave my mother to be frustrated and I guess those things may remain in my mother’s mind as a hurt.

        I would you to not only give some advise for my sister and my mother but some tips for coming true my sister’s dream.

        I want to keep in touch with you.
