When did you get interested in painting with coffee and why?
As I said I have always loved drawing, but I stopped doing it for years. After finishing my degree I remembered how drawing (in a more artistic way) had always made me feel better and I decided that it was the perfect activity to fill my time while taking a break. It all started as a hobby but it changed the moment I decided to start sharing my work on social media. I was not so good back then but with the support of some loyal followers I decided to keep going. Don’t get me wrong, I still have a lot to improve but after a couple of years, every day I am better than the day before.
After trying a lot of techniques and a couple of styles I came across an artist who worked with coffee, Maria A. Aristidou. At that point, I needed something that made me stand out from the rest of artists because I was not good enough with colored pencils or with other traditional techniques so I decided to give coffee a try. I have always liked being creative and coffee gave me a lot of new possibilities. I fell in love with it after finishing my first piece and I have not stopped using coffee since then. I guess it is going to take me longer to become a great artist without that background but with faith and passion—and coffee—I hope to achieve a great level one day.
