Akiane started drawing when she was only 4 years old after a life changing, spiritual experience. She told her mom about visions she had of God and Heaven. Even though the family was indifferent to spirituality or religion, suddenly she started experiencing vivid impressions about invisible realms and a great desire to express them through art utilizing whatever medium was on hand.
At the age of eight the self-taught prodigy completed her first five-foot long oil paintings mastering realism equal to that of a seasoned artist. The media took immediate notice, and her unique story rapidly circled the nation. Oprah Winfrey was the first to discover this nine-year-old’s gift, and once she shared it during her show, Akiane’s fame took off. Soon every continent was reporting her breathtaking story. Akiane, now seventeen, continues to express herself through art and poetry, inspiring and changing countless lives one person at a time.
Akiane says, “Our future is our present. If we take care of it, we take care of tomorrow. The start and finish line is love. I know I am just one person, but I wish that with each brushstroke and with each message I could bring hope to those who have lost it.”
