At 15 years old, Autumn has received numerous honors and accolades for her artwork. Since she began painting professionally at the age of 5, Autumn’s career has included a solo exhibition at the Butler Institute of American Art and being personally selected by Michelle Obama to be appointed as the youngest artist in history to the President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities.
Her artwork is inspired by her dreams, things she notices in passing and even commercials. Equally important to Autumn is her ongoing support of charitable and humanitarian efforts where she has donated time and paintings to support organizations including The Red Cross and Habitat For Humanity.
Her works can be found in collections throughout the world including the Vatican, where she had the honor of presenting artworks to Pope Francis in a private audience. Her first New York City solo exhibition will open on Wednesday, November 8, 2017 and run through November 30, 2017.
Autumn’s family legacy includes a number of known and collected 20th century artists, including painters Roy de Forest (American, 1930-2007), Lockwood de Forest (American, 1850-1932) and George de Forest Brush (American, 1855-1941). Her artistic style has been compared to iconic abstract painters including Jackson Pollock, Pablo Picasso and Gerhard Richter.
