Thomas Kinkade is America's most collected living artist, a painter-communicator whose tranquil, light infused paintings bring hope and joy to millions each year. Each painting Thomas Kinkade creates is a quiet messenger in the home, affirming the basic values of family and home, faith in God, and the luminous beauty of nature.

It was while growing up in the small town of Placerville that these simple, life-affirming values were instilled in him. It was also during this time that Thomas began to explore the world around him. He once spent a summer on a sketching tour with a college friend, producing the best selling instructional book, "The Artist's Guide to Sketching." The success of the book lead the two young artists to painting background art for the animation feature, "Fire and Ice," where Kinkade was able to explore light and imaginative worlds with abandon.

After the film, Kinkade continued to earn his living as a painter, selling his originals in galleries throughout California. In 1982, he married his childhood sweetheart, Nanette, and two years later they began to publish his art

Family and Faith
Thomas Kinkade is a devout Christian and credits the Lord for both the ability and the inspiration to create his paintings. His goal as an artist is to touch people of all faiths, to bring peace and joy into their lives through the images he creates. The letters he receives every day testify to the fact that he is achieving his goal.

A devoted husband and doting father to their four little girls, Thomas hides the letter 'N' in his paintings to pay tribute to his wife, Nanette, and the girls find their names and images in many of his paintings.

Warner Books has recently published Thomas Kinkade's book "Lightposts for Living," which shares Thom's inspiring words and art. The result is a glorious volume, exquisitely designed to please the eye and the spirit. Each chapter acts like an old-fashioned lightpost illuminating the choices that enrich each of our lives

Awards and Accolades
Thomas Kinkade has received numerous awards for his works. Most recently, he has been named by the National Association of Limited Edition Dealers (NALED) as Graphic Artist of the Year, for the fourth year in a row. He has also been named NALED's Artist of the Year and his works have been named Lithograph of the Year for seven years running.

Thomas Kinkade has won the Collector Editions Award of Excellence and was a charter inductee, along with his idol, Norman Rockwell, to the Bradford International Hall of Fame for plate artists. In 1989, he was the Official Artist for the National Parks Collector's Print and has donated his art to the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Christmas program, earning him their coveted Commander in Chief Award. Kinkade has entered the "Hall of Fame" from US Art Magazine
