Thomas Kinkade married his wife, Nanette, in 1982. They had four daughters: Merritt, Chandler, Winsor and Everett. All four of his daughters share the same middle name — Christian — according to a 1999 profile in The New York Times. The same article reported that Kinkade had “dropped out of both the University of California at Berkeley and the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, bummed around the country and painted backgrounds for the animated film ‘Fire and Ice’ before becoming a gallery artist”… Kinkade’s official site bio says that “Numerous paintings contain hidden ‘N’s’ representing Thom’s lovely wife Nanette and many other paintings include the numbers 5282 as tribute to their wedding date May 2, 1982″… Thomas Kinkade’s death was reported to authorities in a 911 call by his live-in girlfriend, Amy Pinto-Walsh.
