Thomas Kinkade

Thomas Kinkade makes his home in the coastal foothills of northern California with his wife, Nanette, and daughters Merritt, Chandler, and Winsor. Underlying his art is Kinkade's deep Christian faith. As he puts it, "I desire to create paintings that bring hope and joy to others, and light is my tool for doing that. I see light as a symbol for the joy in my own heart. Perhaps my work will in some small way communicate that joy."
