Iris Grace Halmshaw, an autistic 3-year-old girl living in Britain, has attracted keen public attention with her fascinating paintings.

Iris, diagnosed with autism in 2011, cannot talk; she even gets distressed when her friends get close to her.

She started painting as a part of therapy. In the process, her parents noticed she is a talented painter.

Since then, her paintings have been on display on Facebook and two pieces were sold for up to 1,500 pounds ($2,200) each. 

Her parents are now planning an exhibition scheduled for November.
