Akiane: Art and Poetry Prodigy
Akiane is an accomplished artist and poet who began drawing at age four. She is considered the only known child “binary” genius, meaning she is a prodigy in both realist painting and poetry. Akiane has had solo art exhibitions at ages 9, 10, 11, and 12. She had a life-changing spiritual transformation at age four, bringing her entire family, including her atheist mother, to a belief in God. Like Jay Greenberg, she explains that her poems often arrive fully conceived (“Official Akiane Gallery,” n.d.).
