Akiane Kramarik was not a "normal" child. She was highly intelligent, and it was apparent the first time she picked up a paint brush that she would go on to do something special with her life. By the time she was 13-years-old she had turned her entire family into millionaires. Her work was being heralded across the globe, and it was transitioning into some major dollars for her family. In fact, by that point in her life, she was the sole bread winner for her entire family.
When she was just 13 years old, her family was raking in over $100,000 a month from selling prints of her work. It is important to mention that her family wasn't coasting on their daughter's talent, they all had roles to play and it kept them all quite busy.
It's no surprise that she has been so successful, she was discovered by Oprah when she was just 8 years old, and her career just blew up from there. But it's not just the publicity she got that helped, her paintings are truly extraordinary.
You can get lost looking at her paintings for hours.
Her work has made her a household name in the fine art world. Her works have been viewed, purchased and collected by the likes of world leaders, Fortune 500 CEOs, world royalty, and celebrities.
Her original pieces cost hundreds of thousands of dollars, and a few have even been appraised at being worth over $1 million. Not bad for a girl still in her early 20s.
She also takes the time to give back to the world community. Akiane has donated her work and money to over 200 different charitable organizations. Charity auctions featuring her pieces have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars as well.
This woman is going to go down in history as one of the greatest painters of all time.
