Hollywood star Johnny Depp is urging his daughter LILY-ROSE to become a painter even though she's just six years old.
The proud father surrounded his daughter with paint, canvases and brushes just six months after she was born, in a bid to inspire her to become an artist.
And he's keeping her childish sketches, because he's convinced they'll be valuable when she's a famous painter.
Depp enthuses, "If I had my wish, Lily-Rose would be a painter. That's why I'm keeping her sketches.
"When she was six months old, I held a paintbrush in her hand.
"By the time she was one, I was guiding her hand to paint with acrylics and also showed her how to keep her brushes clean.
"Now she's intrigued by pastels and is going through her 'purple phase'."12/07/2005 09:15
