Description

Talented artiste Olivia Pedrick sold her first painting at the ripe old age of eight. But she didn’t begin marketing them in earnest until 2011, when her mother set up a Facebook page so a few family members and friends could buy the works. Each piece features an animal — whether it be a cat, dog, turtle, or unicorn — which is appropriate, since Pedrick donates all the money she makes to local shelters. Now 11 years old, she’s completed 300 paintings, donated a total of $8,000 to 30 organizations, and amassed a Facebook following of nearly 4,000 fans. And paintings aren’t all she does: She’s organized dog washes and bake sales, and (with mom’s help) started an all-kids volunteer group in her town. Way to go, Miss Pedrick!
