Akiane – Child Prodigy

Akiane Kramarik was born in Mount Morris, Illinois to a Lithuanian mother and an American father. According to her website, she is homeschooled.

Primarily a self-taught painter, however she states that she is taught by God which is unusual for her family, considering they are not religious. Akiane started drawing at age four, painting at six, and writing poetry at seven. Her first completed self-portrait sold for US$10,000. A large portion of the money generated from sales is donated by Akiane to charities, and apparently she has sold paintings in the region of US$150,000[citation needed]. According to Kramarik, her art is inspired by her visions of heaven, and her personal connection with the Christian God. Kramarik’s art depicts life, landscape, and people.
At the age of 10, she appeared on The Oprah Winfrey Show and on CNN at the age of 12.
