About the Artists


Artist Allison Ataman Allison Ataman grew up on the east coast of Florida––not far from Walt Disney World Resort. As a child, Allison spent her days scribbling with crayons until these images came to life. She received her undergraduate degree in Business Sales/Marketing, and then later pursued her MBA in Information Technology Management from the Florida Institute of Technology. Allison’s family and friends play a significant role in her life, and she couldn’t have gotten to this point without their support. Allison always aspired to fulfill her dream of being an artist and is proud to be a member of the Thomas Kinkade family. She is excited to see her lifelong dream brought to fruition and to see how her relationship with art can grow in the future.


Artist Jenna McMullins Jenna McMullins began her art career in 2017 after graduating with a degree in Design and Illustration. She has designed work for small businesses across the US, and just recently began making officially licensed prints for Lucasfilm Ltd. Her passion for Star Wars and Disney has driven her growth as an artist and continues to inspire her work. Jenna was introduced to Thomas Kinkade’s work in college, and that became her new inspiration, and her dream company to create for. One of her favorite uses of her artistic abilities is to raise money for charities through the sales of her prints.


Artist Joseph Yakovetic Joe has a long history of rich experience as a contributor to the creative content of The Walt Disney Company—from costume and set design to caricaturing and pumpkin carving. In 2006, Joe began a new career as a featured artist for the Disney Galleries. Due to placing shadows and hidden images in his paintings of Disney films and attractions, he was dubbed “The Painter of Shadows,” by Guests. These pieces are highly prized Disney collectibles throughout the world. Joe represents The Walt Disney Company as a sketch artist, performing live sketches of Disney characters for groups all over the world.
