Book Description

April 4 2006

Ten-year-old prodigy Akiane Kramarik shares her artwork, poetry, and the fascinating story surrounding her talent.
Growing up in a home with an atheistic mother and a non-participating Catholic father did not stop four-year-old Akiane Kramarik from finding God. This girls dreams began a conversation in the home that has eventually brought them all to Christianity and the worlds attention. Akiane: Her Life, Her Art, Her Poetry is a collection of the best of Akianes full-color paintings and poetry created from ages 4 to 10, along with details of her family and the amazing stories that surround each unique artwork. Already a media professional, Akiane has been interviewed on programs such as Oprah, World News Tonight, Lou Dobbs Tonight on CNN, and Schullers Hour of Power. Akiane will be one of twenty visual artists participating in the October Listen event raising money for the worlds needy children. Today Akianes art is available online at www.artakiane.com.

Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Though 12th-century mystic Hildegard of Bingen began receiving visions at the extraordinarily young age of five, she was in her early 40s before she revealed them to the public in her writings, artwork and music. Not so for Idaho-born Akiane, a media star who, at the age of 10, confidently reveals her divinely inspired artwork and poetry to the wider world. The book is divided into three parts, the first section being the story of Akiane's life and her visions (which first began at the age of four) as told by her mother—a kind of hagiography of sorts. It's well meaning, but generally stilted and flat in its prose. Most interesting are parts two and three, the second section devoted to full color depictions of Akiane's paintings (vivid, fantasy-like portraits in color and scene), and the third a selection of her poetry. Even more interesting—yet unfortunately left unexplored in any real depth—is the question of how to understand Akiane in the context of Christian spirituality. Is she a mystic? A precociously gifted child? The product of smart agents and advertising? All of the above? Readers will have to decide those questions for themselves. (Apr.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Akiane Kramarik Nov. 28 2011
Format:Hardcover
I first heard about Akiane whilst reading the book"Heaven is for Real: A Little Boys Astounding Story of His Trip to Heaven and Back about a boy named Colton. I was so inspired by this book that I investigated Akiane and subsequently ordered her book. It did not disappoint. It is amazing how the Lord has gifted her to such a degree. Her paintings are literally out of this world and her poetry speaks beyond words.

5.0 out of 5 stars totally awesome! July 14 2006
By E. Ning
Format:Hardcover
Akiane is amazing... God taught her how to draw and paint, beginning at age 4, and at age 11 she is recognized as one of the best. Her story of meeting God as a young child growing up in an atheistic family is compelling, as are her insights into Heaven and the spiritual realm. She writes profound poetry effortlessly... Her family all believe in God now because of her. This is an excellent book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Using our talents the right way Dec 16 2013

Akiane has wonderful use of color. Eyes in animals and humans are full of peace and beauty. This seemed to come to her early, when she was just four or so. It is great to see how she is willing to give God all the praise and glory for her gift!

A good look into the mind and world of a young gifted, God-inspired artist.

This is a beautiful and inspiring book showcasing poems and paintings by an extraordinarily talented painter. Included are photos of her paintings and the quality of the book as well as her art work is very high. It is an inspirational book to have as a coffee table book to be aware that talent like this exists. Thank you for making this book.
