Art Brokerage: American artist Thomas Kinkade: Kinkaide was one America's most collected living artists. Coming from a modest background, Kinkaide emphasizes simple pleasures and inspirational messages through his paintings. As a devout Christian, Kinkaide uses his gift as a vehicle to communicate and spread inherent life-affirming values. It was while growing up in the small town of Placerville, California that these important values were nurtured. It was also during this time that Kinkade began to explore the world around him. He spent a summer on a sketching tour with a college friend, producing the best-selling instructional book, The Artist's Guide to Sketching. Kinkade earned 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. Died April 7, 2012. The Artist recently passed away.
