'The Evolution of Coffee', 2015

Acrylic on canvas
60 x 30 cm
The humble coffee bean undergoes an incredible journey from birth to providing the main ingredient for a delicious hot drink. Equally essential components in the process are the coffee grinder, the teaspoon and the cup. I have set these motifs against a red background to symbolise the warmth of coffee and the atmosphere of the coffee shop but also the toil of harvesting the coffee beans.
