    I did see a piece about her on pbs...she is truly good. Almost every picture has a hidden meaning ass well; I esspecially likethe Pyramids - is she comes up with the themes then she is a briliant little zealot

    Her poetry is amazing as well.
    Seeing something like that makes me mad, because I can't even draw a fish that looks like a fish.

    I can't say I'm extremely fond of it (not really my style, but then again, she is only 9, I guess, so that is damn impressive), but nevertheless, I'd say it is (if nothing else, technically) very good art. I am fond of 'The Pyramids' too, but none of the others are terribly appealing.

    I'm a bit skeptical about some of that poetry. From 'Again I Find the Winter':
    Shadows of enriched colors
    hold me
    like ten-dimentional hands
    What on earth does that mean?
    The word rap as it applies to music is the result of a peculiar phonological rule which has stripped the word of its initial voiceless velar stop.

    I'm assuming that it means that different colored shadows are holding her attention from all over.

    It's really cool that she's so young, but beyond that I can't really say I like her paintings or poems.

    Eh... I think that is a bit of a stretch.
    With her poetry, I get the idea she is grasping for adjectives.

    I agree with you. Once I get over the "WOW" factor it's something that gets boring quickly, although I've been known to be impatient and unappreciative of fine art.

    Maybe she knows about string theory too...

    wait till she gets to be a teenager and then you will see the true nature of her vocabulary, well thats if she hangs out with the normals kids and i doubt her parents letting her do anything normal.

    She's probably being brainwashed by parents who want attention.
