AN AUTISTIC girl is creating a splash in Dartford with her doodles.

Daisy Ingram, eight, suffers from autism and global developmental delay and struggles with communication.

However she loves drawing on her iPad and computer and now her mum, Sam, has set up a website selling her designs to raise money for a sensory room in her home.

Mrs Ingram, 35, of Heath Lane, Dartford said: “She just loves doing the drawings, she’s been doing them since she was three.

“Sometimes she deletes them straight away though so I have to swoop in to save them.

“It is very hard to get in her world but she loves music and light which is why we want to build her a sensory room in the house.”

The pictures are on sale now with prices ranging from £4 to £28.

Nearby businesses are also helping out. What...if? Gallery in Dartford High Street has offered to run a children’s Easter Art Day on April 19 with proceeds going towards the room.
