“Daisy Watt only started painting four years ago when two of her grandparents were diagnosed with cancer and she painted them a picture to cheer them up.
Since then the 10-year-old, dubbed the ‘mini Monet’, has gone on to make £50,000 from her floral landscape paintings, which can sell for up to £10,000.
But instead of keeping the money for herself, the kind-hearted artist has donated it all to charity.
After being impressed with the picture she painted for her grandparents, Daisy’s mum, Karen, 50, asked if she’d like to paint a canvas to be displayed at a local gallery and auctioned for two 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, and it eventually sold for £9,500.”
