Marla Olmstead gained notoriety in 2005, at age 5, when she made multiple television appearances. Some have claimed that her work was created with the help of her father. There was a documentary about her released in 2007 called My Kid Could Paint That. She is now 11. Her work is compared to Abstract Art.

A few years ago, when I used Stumbleupon religiously, I found the website of Akiane Kramarik. I'll be completely honest when I say that it was more than a little creepy- the way they described this young girl and the way they incorporated religion into everything. Akiane, who is now 16, created some amazing artwork at a young age. Regardless of her Christian-themed artwork of the past [almost] decade, she should still be commended for her excellent visual creations.
Kieron Williamson is an 11 year old from England. At age 8, he gained a lot of attention for his artwork, many of which sold for large sums. His work closely resembles impressionists, thoguh he works mainly in watercolors.
