Inspired by my upbringing and working in my family’s cafes, my body of work represents the people and experiences that have made an impression on my life. Encounters are brief while I make each person’s coffee, but they tend to reveal small measures of their personalities. Using gestural drawings and prints, some made using the coffee I brew every day, I express the brief encounters, the small takeaways that occur with each patron – some old friends, some regulars, some one-off customers. Cafes are a collective, tactile, loving environment, and the people within them create memories and joy.
