What a wonderful person. So young, so passionate with such a supportive family and the future for this young girl is mind boggling.

Check out her interview at fifteen years. She also has time-lapse painting on her site. Enjoy!
Akiane’s story speaks to me. I also yearned to draw and paint people since childhood. The urge is still there and haunts me as I go on in my daily activities. Therefore, I can relate with Akiane‘s description of her inspiration. I haven’t had the visions she describes, but I do have sudden ideas and dreams that I write about in poems, and stories and also sketch them until I feel I have to produce a painting.
Many of my paintings are of typical scenes I see around me, but they speak to me. I see the beauty, the color and the mood. The dreams are different. They are emotional expressions, which I capture in pencil or paint. Critics look at them and either like them or are unable to relate.
As I paint or write, time disappears and I am at one with my creation. I continue to learn from my work, my mistakes, my critics and admirers. That is part of growing and learning. Not every work is a masterpiece. Not every masterpiece is accepted by the public. Sometimes a painting I think is ‘trash’ excites a person to purchase it.
Visit Akiane’s website and enjoy the wonder of her and her great talents—she has many. I would love to meet her some day.
