Billion Dollar Painter

The Triumph and Tragedy of Thomas Kinkade, Painter of Light

By (author) G. Eric Kuskey, With Bettina Gilois

The unbelievable true story of artist Thomas Kinkade, self-described “Painter of Light,” and the dramatic rise – and fall – of his billion-dollar gallery and licensing business.

Eric Kuskey worked intimately with Thomas Kinkade and his company for over fourteen years and remained friends with him until his death. He is currently the co-founder and owner of a Los Angeles–based agency representing a diverse range of talent and brands including Heidi Klum and Emmanuelle Chriqui.

Bettina Gilois has won the Humanitas Prize, and a Black Reels Best Screenplay award for Glory Road.  She has written for Jerry Bruckheimer, and in addition to writing books and screenplays, she blogs about art and life for the Huffington Post.
