I set up my mobile coffee art gallery indoors and outdoors all year round.
For indoor shows I’ll use up to 20 pieces of 8 foot tall gridwalls. The walls are self supporting and make for an open space allowing people to easily step out of the aisles to look and shop.
For outdoor events I use my Flourish Trimline Canopy tent. This pole tent is not your average ‘pop up’ canopy; it’s a very sturdy pole tent with a heavy marine vinyl and is weighted. This booth set up can be used in just about any weather condition.
When possible or if asked; I can expand my set up to fill a much larger space with ease or condense to only occupy a table space. My set up is very adjustable.
Remember that I also make coffee art to match an event’s theme thereby allowing my booth set up to compliment the hosting show!

Painting live at art shows and festivals
Come see me live at different events all year long. Mostly I’m in western WA but I’m working towards getting into events all over the US. If you do come to a show just follow the smell of coffee and if you find an actual coffee vendor before you find my booth bring me a 12oz black!
Awards for art and displays
Best of Show
This was the very first time that I ever set up for an outdoor show, with my first tent and I got an award! I didn’t event have a rug on the ground… my booth has come a long way since then!
This was at the 2017 Tulip Festival in Mount Vernon, WA.
Second place at the Coffee Fest in NYC
Early in the summer of 2015 a lady saw my coffee art online and asked if I'd like to participate by donating some of my coffee art to this event. The New York Coffee Art Project raises money for Project Waterfall which brings clean water the those who need it. I was excited to get my art shown in New York and help with such an important cause. I designed this art and sent it in. Then I found out it was selected as one of 36 to be showcased and sold at the auction. My artwork placed second and sold for $350 to the high bidder. I earned $500 prize money and donated all that to the cause too!
I still have this coffee painting and whom ever buys it can have the ribbons.
Since I live in Grays Harbor I thought I’d try to showcase some of my coffee art in an effort to get my name out locally but it wasn’t until afterwards that I learned that fair submissions are anonymous and they wouldn’t display my name to the public. The artwork was also returned to me so beat up that I had to repackage it. So I’ll probably not display at fairs ever again. But hey at least I won!
Steampunk is one of my favorite styles
It’s a crazy thing to design and very time consuming but steampunk styles are a fun artistic challenge.
Steampunk can be summed up as Victorian Era Science Fiction. Just look it up…. there’s a large community of creative steampunk enthusiasts online.
This was one of my very first coffee paintings.

Mermaids and coffee
I love mermaids and I love coffee and I love them both combined.
Every mermaid is something unique and I’m often thinking up new ways to design them.
