Akiane Kramarik began drawing at the young age of four and is also a very good poet.


Akiane Kramarik was born on 9th July 1994 in Mount Morris, Illinois, United States.

Early Life

Akiane Kramarik’s childhood was not so pleasant since her parents were not so well off and really struggled to make ends meet.
They lived in a shanty which had no kitchen and barely any furniture in a very dangerous neighborhood.
Their mother would walk from door to door trying to find friends for them to play with but got rejected at every home.
At the time she was born, her father got ill because of the toxins in their well water and pesticides that were sprayed over their house by crop planes.
Seeing how bad their father’s health was, Akiane’s mother started a small book business which grew two years later and they moved to a mansion in Rolla, Missouri.
After their father got better, her mother quit the job to dedicate all her attention to them. Akiane says that her mother would always listen to everything she had to say about the dreams and visions that she had begun seeing about the future world. She was the only one who believed they were real.
One time, something mysterious happened; Akiane disappeared. A lot of cars and search parties appeared around their neighborhood and her photograph posted all over.
Surprisingly, she could see all the people who were looking for her but none of them could see her.
Sometime later, she appeared among the onlookers at her house. This awed her and everyone else. She says that she had been hearing the voice of God during the incident.
Through her dreams and visions, Akiane began drawing and painting with the help of her mother and brothers at the age of 4.
