Thomas Kinkade, the famed Painter of Light™, loved to share his passion for art and his creative process with other artists throughout his career. Thom believe in supporting artist development and exchanged ideas with artists. Through this collaborative environment, Thom passed down his methods and imparted the techniques, concepts, and vision for his signature Kinkadian style. Today, the artists of the Thomas Kinkade Studios apply many of the same techniques created and used by Thom during his lifetime; from sketching to digital and oil brushwork, to image recapture and his use of light. Over time, these mastered skills have evolved into a style of art adored by collectors around the world.
