About Kieron Williamson

Kieron Williamson was born on August 4, 2002 as the first child of art dealer Keith and nutritional therapist Michelle Williamson. Yes, you read that correctly; this young artist has just turned 8 years old!

Kieron, his 6 year old sister Billie-Jo, and his parents live in a small apartment in Holt, Norfolk in England. He loves swimming, fishing, playing computer games, soccer, and most of all painting and playing football.

Speaking of growing up; Kieron is like any average child. He likes being outdoors and his talent was like any other child up until the age of 5, when the family was on vacation at Devon and Cornwall in May 2008. He loved the environment so much, he asked his parents for paper so he could draw what he saw.

In a short period of time, with an enormous devotion, determination and commitment on Kieron's part, his talent grew by leaps and bounds, taking him to a level where the British media considers him to be a 'Mini Monet'.

He seems to get great inspiration from coastal scenes and rural landscapes which he loves to paint. According to the young artist, he likes these scenes in particular, because "it makes me think of places I can’t see."

Kieron divides his time between his art, sport, hobbies and school. His day starts as early as 6 am, because he likes to spend as much time as possible with other artists, learning new techniques and skills. His ideal is being a painter and a football player when he grows up and I think we will hear much more from this young, gifted, boy.

He sure is a wonderful example of being able to accomplish whatever goal you set your mind on!
