The child artist’s incredible oil paintings are now fetching up to €58,000 each at auction.

The 10-year-old has been labelled a ‘mini-Monet’ and it’s not difficult to see why as his Norfolk scenery catches the public’s imagination.

A recent exhibition of 23 of his works have just sold for over €282,000.

"They liked all of them and were sold in 20 minutes," he said.. "I'm really happy and I'm really surprised.”

Keiron has been painting since a family holiday five years ago and  has earned an amazing  €1.75m .

Asked what his friends think, he replied: "They don't really see me as an artist, we concentrate more on football and think about the football result every night.”

His parents are keen for his life to stay as normal as possible although he has been followed by a German tv documentary crew.

From next year he will be home tutored, so he can focus more on the painting.
