There are various debates about her on the Internet. Some voices speak of her with awe, others speak of her in a knocking fashion – usually because she is religious and believes passionately in God (today it seems to be suspisious). Interestingly, being a daughter of atheist parents, Akiane learned about God through visions that appeared to her. She was home schooled, didn’t watch TV and their home doesn’t have Internet connection. So, there is no outside influences to her art and spiritual awakening. Everything that she learned is all from visions.
She was born on July 9th, 1994, underwater at home. Growing up with a few siblings, she is obviously blessed with an incredible gift, and she is very intelligent. She can speak four languages: Lithuanian, Russian, English, and Sign language.
Akiane showed, from a very early age, a high degree of technical skill in the making of fine art paintings. There was a very high degree of precocity in these works, such that they appeared to have been made by the steady hand and eye of a much older, more experienced artist. It is this quality of work that leads to the description of her as a child prodigy. Enjoy the video:
