Thomas Kinkade has sold more canvases than any other painter in history--more than Picasso, Rembrandt, Gaughin, Monet, Manet, Renoir and Van Gogh combined. He is to Art what Henry Ford was to automobiles.

He is the most collected living artist in the U.S. and worldwide (60 minutes CBS).

  • One in Every 30 Americans own a Thomas Kinkade image whether in stationary, greetings cards, jig saw puzzles, afghans, night lights, Lazy Boy chairs, clocks, watches, train sets, lighthouses, plates, or high end canvsses which is what I sell.
  • Thomas Kinkade paintings radiate light and by using lighting with a dimmer switch you can literally change the painting from dawn to mid-day sun to sunset, which Thom attributes to soft edges, a warm palette and an overall sense of light.

You are invited to visit with me and Share the Light!

I'm available TOLL free (1-800-213-6415) late evenings to consult with even weekend evenings up to 10pm Los Angeles time.

Thom Discovers His Talent Early

It was Tom's Kindergarten Teacher that told Tom's mother that one day he would be a great artist ....

Soon his family knew at a very young age that Thom was a gifted artist. At age 4, he was correcting the perspective of a roadway that his sister had drawn beside a house in a picture! From that age on, his direction was set. By age 13, he was painting at a professional level in oil, much to the amazement of his fine art teachers at the local high school. He sold his first painting at age 11 for $7.50. The woman who bought it remembered thinking at the time, "I'd better hold onto this picture. It will probably be worth something someday."

Thom Attends School

Thom chose Berkeley for his first two years of college. During his years at Berkeley, but at Berkeley, the philosophy seemed to be, "Express yourself, FOR yourself" in a very self-absorbing , self-focused way. The Berkley ethics and mores were not something Thom could agree with and so left and he enrolled at the Art Center College of Design located in Pasadena, California.
