This fantastic 10-year-old artist sells paintings for thousands, donates money to charity
Daisy Watt might be only 10 years old, but her stunning artwork featuring gorgeous floral landscape can fetch up to £10,000. The ‘mini Monet’ from England has already earned £50,000 through her paintings—and donated it all to charity.
Daisy only started painting four years ago when two of her grandparents were diagnosed with cancer and she painted a picture to cheer them up.
Her mom, Karen, spotted the youngster’s talent, and asked if she’d like to paint a canvas to be displayed at a local gallery and auctioned for cancer charities.
Bidders from all over the world fought to buy the work featuring forget-me-nots for those who had died and bright flowers for those who survived. The large painting varied in color tone, going from dark to light, to represent the battle with cancer.
It sold for £9,500 and was so popular that 100 special edition prints were commissioned and snapped up by buyers from the likes of Canada and Hong Kong.
