Global Recognition for Iris Grace

Iris Grace, a child with an extraordinary talent to express herself through painting.  We wanted to share her art to inspire and raise awareness of her condition, she is on the Autistic Spectrum.  Her story was published Globally and she has sold paintings to private art collectors here in the UK and all over the world including Angelina Jolie.  Profits from the sales of her art go towards her therapies, education and future.  Iris met Thula, a Maine coon cat in 2014 and life at home started to change.  They had an immediate affinity, Iris started to open up and communicate with Thula in a way that she hadn’t done before.


Arabella Carter-Johnson is Iris Grace’s mother and a professional photographer.  She has documented their journey through diary entries and photographs and now tells Iris’s story in her first book.  Illustrated in full colour with photographs and of course Iris’s paintings.  ‘Iris Grace’ has been published in Hardcover by Penguin.
