Nature was her teacher, and Akiane Kramarik absorbed everything. Home schooled in rural Illinois, with no television or radio to disrupt her explorations, she was only four when she began drawing her visions in extraordinary creations, using whatever materials were at hand.
At six she was painting. By seven she was writing poetry. Though her parents were atheists, she began sharing visions and dreams of a spiritual realm she had never learned of through her family or studies. She has been called an Indigo child, a child prodigy, a spiritual conduit.
Turning 21 in 2015, she is a renowned painter, best-selling author, and a totally amazing young woman. The video below is a 9-minute introduction to her life and work. When she is asked what message she wants her art to give to people, she says, “I want people to find hope in my work.”
