My original “Drawing Heaven” article focused completely on Akiane Kramarik, back in 2012. While her artwork is out-of-this-world stunning, there are other artists out there, too, who make attempts to Draw Heaven based on their near-death experiences. So in this article, I’m going to show some of them, too. I’ll save Akiane’s newer works for the end 🙂
*Disclaimer – I am not trying to steal anyone’s artwork. I am only trying to share it with my readers. Every heading will reflect the name of the artist and will also serve as a link to the website where I found the art and information. If you see your art here and you do not want it here, please contact me and I will promptly remove it from AngelicView. Thank you. And thank you for sharing 🙂
Ms. Martin’s artwork really speaks to me. I originally found her artwork on Near Death Experience Research Foundation’s (NDERF’s) website, so I assume it’s post NDE. Here are Ms. Martin’s welcoming words on her website:
My paintings stem from a journey of the soul searching for spiritual light and are an attempt to open windows for other dimensions of purity, refinement and holiness.
There are many more wonderful artworks in her gallery. Just click on the heading to go to her website.
According to this article, Pip Taylor was a terrible artist before her NDE. She tried to draw faces and they didn’t look right at all. In the article, it shows one of her “before” drawings. But after her NDE, she became a really awesome artist. While I didn’t find any instances of her Drawing Heaven, I did want to share a couple of her drawings here.
Darlene made this video of her paintings of Heaven at the IANDS conference in 2014.
Akiane has not claimed to have had an NDE – that I know of. Many people have asked her where her visions have come from and she does not answer (I’m sure she’s a very busy young woman). However, on her Wikipedia page, it says that “God spoke to her at the age of four”. Interesting to take note that her parents were atheists at the time and she didn’t know about God or anything spiritual, according to herself and her parents. Here are some of her most recent works (in addition to the image at the top of this post). Please visit her gallery for more.
“When I was young, I often returned to one special place.
There the roots were intertwined along with all the creatures on the island. In the distance, stood a transparent pyramid. I cannot remember its purpose. The giants (a cross between: animal, plant and spirit, reaching to some forty feet tall) gifted me with a transparent seedling for growing, nurturing and teaching. During my last visit, I replanted it right on the arch by the waterfall.” ~Akiane Kramarik
“Each and every one of us is part of the infinite perspective seeing reality through our own individual awareness.
Without one of our views there wouldn’t be absolute fulfillment and completeness” ~Akiane Kramarik
