The Amazing Paintings of Child Prodigy, Akiane Kramarik

How Akiane Started Painting

I would like to share with you today a story about Akiane Kramarik, an amazingly gifted young Lithuanian girl, now seventeen, who started sketching when she was only four years old.

Her family was not spiritual and, in fact, her mom was, at that time, an atheist. The family led a very quiet and, what some would consider, an extremely sheltered lifestyle.

At the very young age of four, however, Akiane started having visions and dreams of other worlds. She would talk about visiting heaven, seeing God and the universe in amazing colors and in a way that she could not describe in words to her parents at this very tender age.

So when Akiane told her parents about these visions she was having, her mother believed that these visions and dreams were very real to her daughter although she, herself, could not imagine what Akiane was seeing... so she told her to draw them. It was then that Akiane began sketching.

Akiane's magnificent paintings are what her visions and dreams evolved into from those very early sketches that she was encouraged to draw by her mother.

I think there is no denying that the paintings created by this young woman are awe inspiring and quite literally, jaw dropping.

I've had 2 garden visions (maybe 3 but I'm not certain). The colors were so vibrant, chrome-like is the closest description to anything we have here on earth. Akiane I too send you my blessings.
