Hailed by The Discovery Channel as an artistic genius, it’s no surprise that Autumn de Forest’s paintings have sold for as much as $25,000 and is sought after by collectors around the world. The 13 year old has been painting since she was 5 and her artwork hangs among other masterpieces by art history greats such as Picasso, Miro, Dali, and Chagall on Park West Gallery’s walls. Uninhibited by one specific style, she moves from one genre to another from the abstract to a Warhol-inspired pop art Rapunzel piece. Realizing her valuable gift, de Forest continually donates her artwork to support humanitarian efforts across the globe as well as those closer to home such as Habitat for Humanity and Hurricane Sandy relief efforts.
