Cycling and coffee drinking are two pursuits that are inextricably linked. There’s something in the deep rich darkness of a well made espresso that sets the mind wandering to the dusty roads of Tuscany and the mountain finishes of the Grand Tours.
My work is created in a swift series of brush strokes using the colour of coffee allied with the form of the cup to depict the kinetic energy of the peloton.
