Akiane (pronounced ah-kee-ah-nah) is a child prodigy artist and poet who claims her inspiration comes from God, and that she’s in constant communication with Him.
Even though Akiane Kamarik seems to be a very humble young lady (now 13 years old), she does stir up controversy and anger just from her assertions and the subject matter of her paintings.
I even found a blog post from 2006 that still gets comments pro and con concerning Akiane’s story of how and where she received her talent.
Whether you believe her or not, she is an extraordinary artist, and her original paintings command between $100,000 to $1 million each.
