Kinkade grew up in a small town, Placerville, California. Grounded in middle American values, Kinkade was drawn to the beauty around him. Later, he spent a summer on a sketching tour with a college friend that resulted in the publication of “The Artist’s Guide to Sketching.”

From that success, the two friends were hired by Ralph Bakshi Studios to create background art for the animated film, “Fire and Ice.” It was then that Kinkade began experimenting with the use of light and creating the imaginative worlds that are often the subject of his work. Since then, Kinkade has also produced unique works featuring Disney characters, such as his recently released take on Peter Pan.

After the film, 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.

“When I was almost 20 years old, God became a calling in my life,” Kinkade said. “I wanted to somehow use my talent to bless others … (the use of light) is a visual representation of God’s love, its purity, the spiritual…. The sky symbolizes an element in each of my paintings – that without light there would be no world.”

Kinkade said that his mother told him that “God had given him is talent as a gift” and it was his duty to “share his gift” with the world to make it brighter for others.
