    From the beginning of my career, I found inspiration from the old method of coffee wash. With my own unique complexity and originality, I bring this technique up to date.

    Using impastos, which give my work an almost sculptural aspect, I place my subjects on canvas by superimposing alternately rich layers of acrylic and coffee. The numerous steps and drying time between layers allow me to work on several paintings at a time. I add personal touches with golden acrylic and a thick black grout made up of pure coffee which gives off a delicious aroma. The gleaming glaze and varnish give the works of art a richness which enhances the raised details and gilt.
