The millionaire schoolboy artist who could rival Monet

Kieron Williamson's mother describes him as a normal ten-year-old who loves football.

But the schoolboy has another passion.

Since picking up a paint brush at the age of five, his art has become so acclaimed, his last collection sold for hundreds of thousands of pounds.

ITV News correspondent Nina Nannar went to meet the boy who's being called a mini-Monet.

Kieron told ITV News that despite all the attention he has been getting, his friends do not look at him as an artist.

He said: "My friends don't really think of me as an artist. They just concentrate more on football, and what I think about the football results."
