As a coffee artist, I get to drink my paint water safely!  


My history of painting with non-paints stretches back over a decade.  In the beginning, everything was pencil and pen.  While traditional paints were introduced in school, the process always seemed so sterile coming from a tube, bottle or jar.  I wanted my colors to tell stories beyond their names.  I didn't want my red to be just "Currant Red"; I wanted my red to be "This wonderful wine I was sipping while I painted a sunset".  I didn't want my blue to be just "Iris Blue"; I wanted my blue to be from an actual iris I happened upon while hiking a grand mountain.  My colors do not have manufacturer's numbers; they have lives.

These days, I paint with the coffee spectrum of flavor.  From the bold, dark browns of power roasts to the light, vivacious tans of brilliant blends, and every shade of aroma in between.  My art reflects the joy of authoring my own pigments, both intentionally and by "happy" accident!  

In everything, I want my art to reflect good taste and taste good.

Good art takes time.  Great art takes more time.  

I have come to the realization that I create only a few of these pieces of art for only a few people each month.  This does not truly benefit everyone who might also enjoy and appreciate those pieces of art.  I want my works to be accessible to others who might not otherwise be in the position to guide my brush.

My overarching goal, through the platform of Patreon, is to allow my patrons to effectively crowdsource significant works of art that they will receive prints of at the end of each month.  While it would be difficult to afford commissioning (or, on the flip side, spending so much of my time on) a month-long piece, by crowdsourcing, we can both make this a possibility.  I plan to create fine art that can be professionally reproduced in short, unique print runs for my patrons.  I want to make masterpieces that my patrons will be proud to display in their homes.


Thank you for being here.

Thank you for believing in me.

Food!

On occasion, when coffee is not enough to sustain me, I find I need to eat food.  Every little bit helps!
