Hi all. So I think I will be switching blogs pretty soon. Not as in forgetting about this one and leaving it in the dust and never coming back, just concentrating more. I’m a newly transferred fashion and textiles management major (though you might not have been able to tell from all the puppies I reblog. I’d like to build a fashion blogging rep (no promises, but I’ll try). From here out I’m probably mainly going to be monitoring and posting from my other blog (which won’t be the same content as what’s on here, but let’s face it this has all been pretty random anyway). My more “professional” platform is Wordpress but I’ll be forwarding the posts to my tumblr as well as reblogging some hip fashion pics. I’ll definitely still be back on this blog, just not as often as I have been in the past. I would love your support, you can find me here (connollyms)! I really appreciate all of you and the amazing human beings you are, the awesome blogs you have and all the wonderful things you post!! <3 Thanks!

utism is a poorly-understood neurological disorder that can impair an individual’s ability to engage in various social interactions. But little 5-year-old Iris Grace in the UK is an excellent example of the unexpected gifts that autism can also grant – her exceptional focus and attention to detail have helped her create incredibly beautiful paintings that many of her fans (and buyers) have likened to Monet’s works.
Little Iris is slowly learning to speak, whereas most children have already begun to speak at least a few words by age 2. Along with speech therapy, her parents gradually introduced her to painting, which is when they discovered her amazing talent.
“We have been encouraging Iris to paint to help with speech therapy, joint attention and turn taking,” her mother, Arabella Carter-Johnson, explains on her website. “Then we realised that she is actually really talented and has an incredible concentration span of around 2 hours each time she paints. Her autism has created a style of painting which I have never seen in a child of her age, she has an understanding of colours and how they interact with each other.”
This is some amazing art!
