Cassie is just like other kids. She loves fairies, elephants, the color pink, and going to the beach. Most of all, she loves to paint.

After discovering Cassie’s unique talent for painting, her mom put up the site Cassie Swirls and decided to help charities with the profits from Cassie’s works. She has sold over 100 paintings that has already benefited several foundations. And it looks like, she won’t stop painting any time soon.

Cassie uses her hands, a fork, or a skewer to create intricate patterns. Her paintings are primarily a combination of acrylic and resin. She then adds glitter to make her work glow and look happy.

This little girl’s artistic talent is sure to take her  places. But importantly, her works remind people that no one is too young to help others with their talents.
