Akiane Kramarik was born in Mount Morris, Illinois to a Lithuanian mother and an American father. She is homeschooled.[1]

She is primarily a self-taught painter. However, she states that God has given her the visions and abilities to create her artwork, which is unusual for her family, considering both her parents were atheist at the time (they later converted to Christianity on account of Kramarik's paintings and visions). Kramarik started drawing at the age of four, advancing to painting at six, and writing poetry at seven. Her first completed self-portrait sold for US$10,000.[2] A large portion of the money generated from sales is donated by Kramarik to charities.[3] According to Kramarik, her art is inspired by her visions of heaven, and her personal connection with 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

I envy her so much :p xxx

Her work is awesome, but the apparatus around her (in the media and such) seems too much. Like the parents kinda parade her around. :/

Lol, there must be some sibling rivalry in that family.

She is amazing, such a natural talent.

After briefly skimming through her works, I'm tiny bit suspicious, since I find certain works to be of unequally higher-skill level than others...

Nevertheless, I wish her all the best so she can grow her talent.

The emotion in some of her paintings! She seems to be matured beyond her years, at least, that's what some of the paintings suggest.
