About the Artist: Thomas Kinkade – The Painter of light
In the very beginning of his artistic career, Thomas Kinkade put his entire life savings into the printing of his first lithograph. Though at the time he was already an acclaimed illustrator, Thom found that he was inspired not by fame and fortune, but by the simple act of painting straight from the heart, putting on canvas the natural wonders and images that moved him most, It was this dedication and singular-minded focus on the ultimate goal of Sharing the Light that made Thomas Kinkade, a simple boy with a brush from the small country town of Placerville, California the most-collected living artist of his time.
Throughout his life, Thomas Kinkade shared his joy and used his paints in support of hospitals, schools and humanitarian relief. Though the recipient of countless awards and honours, it was Thom’s profound sense of purpose that his art was not just an accessory, but also a ministry, that continues as his legacy. From custom images that were sold for the Salvation Army, Hurricane Katrina relief, Rotary International, to donations that now grace the halls of St. Jud’s Children’s Research Hospital, the White House, The Vatican, and Britain’s Tate Museum, Thom raised hundreds of thousands of dollars over his lifetime for charity.
Thomas Kinkade, the Painter of Light, emphasised simple pleasures and inspiration messages through his art – and the branded products created from that art. From textiles, to collectible, to music and books, Thom gave credit to a higher power for both the ability and the inspiration to create his paintings. His goal as an artist was to touch people of all faiths, to bring peace and joy into their lives through the images he had created.
Thom’s dearest wish had always been that his artwork would be a messenger of hope and inspiration to others – a message to slow down, appreciate the little details in life, and to look for beauty in the world around us. As millions of collectors around the world sit back and enjoy his artwork in their homes, there is no doubt that Thomas Kinkade had indeed achieved his goal of Sharing the light.
