A Southern California native, artist Daniel Killen has lived within a few miles of Disneyland his entire life. He eventually came to regard Disneyland as his second home and even worked in restaurant services for the park after High School. Having always been creative, Disneyland and Walt Disney movies fueled his imagination and inspired him to use his creativity in all manners of work, with the goal of one day making a living as an artist.
Thomas Kinkade emphasized simple pleasures and inspirational messages through his art and found great faith in both the ability and the inspiration to create his paintings. His goal as an artist was to touch people of all faiths, to bring peace, and joy into their lives through the images he created. Thom partnered with Disney in 2005, to capture the wonder of Sleeping Beauty Castle. A New Day at the Cinderella Castle made dreams come true for Disney and Thomas Kinkade fans alike.
