At 4 years old, I don’t think I would have had the talent to become a painter but for 4-year-old Cosette Swart, it was an instant labor of love. As a young artist in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, she has raised over $4000 for local charities and it is just the beginning for this tiny and adorable artist.
According to her website, she “wants to help feed the poor people” and at only 4-years-old, she has done so much already. Her mother, Kristy-Anne Swart who is also an artist encouraged her daughter to begin painting by giving her an acrylic paint set that she used when she was younger.
