After retiring and moving to the Smoky Mountains 14 years ago, Judy worked for Louise Mandrell Theater and Smoky Mountains Theater as Box Office Manager. Recently she developed an interest in becoming an art advisor, and last season she was proud to be a part of the Thomas Kinkade Christmas of Light Show where she learned to appreciate Thom’s artwork.

Scott Sewell, Art Consultant

Scott has lived in East Tennessee since 1967, when he moved here and promptly fell in love with the Smoky Mountains. He has always been interested in affordable art and earned his degree in Fine Arts from the University of Tennessee. Working with the Thomas Kinkade family has been a natural fit.

Chris Brown, Gallery Director

Chris, a native Texan, is a hard working, single mom of three. She has been a Thomas Kinkade collector for over twenty years and has worked with the company for over fifteen years. Chris has always dreamed of living in the mountains. In August of 2017, she listened to God, followed her heart, and made those dreams come true! Chris packed up and moved to Pigeon Forge, TN and God opened the door for her to become the Gallery Director for Thomas Kinkade Gallery & Gifts.
