The Grass Valley Downtown Association has created its fourth fine art poster for Cornish Christmas. Thomas E. Devine has conceptualized Cornish Christmas 2002. The media describes Devine’s work as “a variety of subjects in an impressionistic style.”

“Nature has been my greatest influence, I grew up on a farm along the river and lived in the north woods for 55 years. Most of my work is a direct reflection of my early years with some sprinkles of fantasy mixed in,” Devine said.

A full-time resident of Wisconsin for more than 55 years, Tom and his wife, Sandy, now divide their time between two residences.

Summers are spent at their hand-crafted log house at Lake Amacoy, Wis.; winters in the historic district of Nevada City. Tom enjoys exploring and fly fishing the streams of the Sierra Nevada.

His work has been shown in mostly the Western states and he is a member of Gallery II in Nevada City.

We are fortunate to have such a fine illustration of the feeling of Cornish Christmas this year, said Howard Levine of the Grass Valley Downtown Association.
