Inspiring: Five-Year-Old Creates Amazing Abstract Paintings

Australian Cassie Gee

Australian Cassie Gee has already made about $1 000 (R13 000) selling her paintings and is now getting commissions from customers in New Zealand and the United States – and Cassie is only five years old.

The little girl from Sydney has been a “professional artist” since the age of three. She uses a combination of acrylic paint, resin and glitter to create galaxy landscapes.

According to her website, she loves going to the beach, elephants, fairies and, of course, painting – which she often does with just a fork or her hands.

The proceeds from sales of her works go towards causes like Essentials 4 Women SA, Holt Family Fundraiser and Royal Society for the Blind.

 

Cassie’s mother, Linda Gee, discovered her daughter’s artistic talents two years ago when she gave the little girl a canvas and a few tubes of paint in order to keep her busy, Viral Thread reports.

“I have a lot of supplies as I paint for a hobby,” Linda says. “I gave Cassie the canvas and the paints and said, ‘Go do something.’ She came back with it and I said, ‘Oh my God, that’s better than mine!’ ”

The abstract impressionist paintings Cassie has created have been featured on national television in Australia and she’s sold more than 20 of them.

 

According to Metro UK, she donated $250 (R3 200) of the money she’s earned to install a rainwater tank for school kids in Cambodia.

For every painting sold this year she’s donated a set of colouring pencils and a pencil case to disadvantaged children.
