Four year old Marla Olmstead from New York becomes the sensation of the art world for her abstract artwork, which have sold for thousands of dollars.

The showing of her work started off as a lark, but when the paintings sold without the buyers knowing who the artist was, the media began to run with the story.

Through it all, Marla's parents, Mark and Laura, want to be grounded in what is best for their daughter.

But some negative and big name media also surfaces, some questioning whether Marla is the real artist behind the work, and some questioning exposing a four year old to such infamy.
