Her family was atheistic and rarely talked about spiritual matters, but one day when she was four years old Akiane experienced having visions of heavenly and spiritual dimensions. Because Akiane was home-schooled, and had never been out of their sight, the parents were certain that no one else could have influenced Akiane’s sudden and visions about the spiritual realm. After having these experiences and visions she started to paint what she saw and she has painted ever since and does so every day. She sais that her teacher is God and that she learns by her own mistakes and through observation.
