Five-year-old Cassandra Gee has been painting since the age of three, like many kids. But as much as I love the finger paintings most little kids make, Gee’s paintings aren’t like that. They look like art that should hang in a gallery.
Cassie’s mom has helped Cassie sell her paintings on Etsy to benefit charity, according to Bored Panda.
This video shows Cassie in action, and helps explain her technique. First, she drips paint on canvas, and then uses forks or skewers to twist the acrylic and resin paint into intricate patterns. Often, she’ll add glitter or glow-in-the-dark pigments to make her swirls look galactic.
The results are stunning, and surprisingly sophisticated.
