Meet Akiane Kramarik, who drew the real face of Jesus christ from her vision
Akiane kramarik was born on July 9, 1994, in Mount Morris, Illinois, to a Lithuanian mother and a non-practicing Catholic American father.
Kramarik said she saw the face of Jesus in her visions. Her schooling started at parochial school, but later she was homeschooled.
Concerning her inspirations and motivation, she said:
“Religious art of sculptures, reliefs and paintings in one of the parochial schools I attended greatly influenced my later attraction to legendary figures.
For the first time I got to encounter the world’s view of what divinity was supposed to be, but deep down I felt that I perceived everything in a much broader and deeper sense. It appeared to me as if most people were completely ignorant of other realities, or that the realities they perceived were seen only from a very narrow angle”
Akiane Kramarik is a self-taught painter and says that Jesus spoke to her when she was four years old, encouraging her to draw and paint her visions and bring them to life.
She began to draw at the age of four, was painting at six, and began to write poetry at seven. At the age of 8 years old, Akiane made a painting of Jesus. Her first completed self-portrait sold for US$10,000.
