Autumn de Forest is a name that is quickly becoming one that many people know. At a very young age, she had started to make a name for herself as an incredibly talented artist. 

Her work has been compared to art world giants such as Andy Warhol, Jackson Pollock, and Pablo Picasso. Her work has been in exhibitions all around the world and she never ceases to impress. 

Let's take a look at how it all started for her and what she is up to now! 


Autumn de Forest started making art at just the age of 5. 

She stepped into a studio and that was it – she knew that this was going to be the thing that she was good at. 

By the time that she was 14 years old, she had had her art showcased alongside some of the greatest contemporary and modern artists in the world. 

Dr. Joanne Ruthsatz, the foremost authority on the clinical study of prodigies, named her an “advanced child prodigy”. I didn't know there even was such a field of study! 


The reasons to be impressed with her don't stop there. 

After selling her first painting for $1,000 she decided to dedicate her time and money to charitable work, some of which include Habitat for Humanity and the Red Cross.

I know what you're thinking, it isn't fair! 

But she does come from a long line of artists including Roy de Forest, Lockwood de Forest and George de Forest Brush. 

She was even honored by the Pope in 2015 by being awarded the International Giuseppe Sciacca Award for Arts and Culture. 

And her art is now featured in the Vatican collection! That is pretty crazy, right? Wow!
