Shortlisted entry to the Coffee Art Project 2018 New York.
The inspiration for this piece are the everyday rituals that we can all relate to, our common thread framed in an ordinary moment. This expression of the personal, a self portrait drinking my daily coffee at the kitchen table. Regardless of culture or race this is a shared experience throughout the world of coffee drinkers! For me it goes further still, it’s a self examination of my creative process. An expression of a moment of quiet reflection, thoughts explored or just simply being present that I find some of my best and most interesting ideas. There are no stylistic acrobatics in this piece, its raw and real, pen and ink my modes of creative expression. We are all looking, wondering and exploring in the everyday and at its heart it is simply a celebration of the everyday.
