Over twenty-eight years have passed since Thomas Kinkade put his entire life savings into his first lithograph printing in 1984. Inspired not by fame and fortune, Thom found his purpose in the simple act of painting straight from the heart, putting on canvas the natural wonders and images that moved him most.
Though the recipient of countless awards and honors, it was Thom's profound sense of purpose that his art is not just an accessory, but a ministry, that will be his legacy in the years to come. Over the years he shared his joy and used his paints in support of hospitals, schools, and humanitarian relief.
Thom's dearest wish has 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, the most popular artist of his era, has indeed achieved his goal of Sharing the Light.
