One of her most popular works is a breathtaking portrait of Jesus himself, called “Prince of Peace” which she completed at the age of 8.“I was so young but started having these visions and impressions of the world.“I was just so surprised at the impeccable images I had in my head that I just had to express them in some sort of physical matter,” she said.
Akiane said as her visions are like dreams, they quickly lose clarity, so she tries to capture them as soon as she can.
She described God as “like a bow of light—really pure, really masculine, really strong, and big…His eyes are just beautiful,” in an interview with CNN when she was 12.
Another image she painted of Jesus is named “Father Forgive Them”, which shows Jesus with his arms raised in the air to his Father in Heaven.And describing heaven, Akiane said its vibrancy and beauty is unimaginable by anyone on earth.
