They say you learn something every day... by 

I’ve learnt to REALLY enjoy that cup of coffee!

W&N watercolour on Bockingford 300gsm

There is nothing quite like that first cup of coffee in the morning, when you take it out to the patio, wrap your hands around the cup and slowly sip while listening to the sounds of the birds.

Coffee is consumed as a hot or cold beverage by about one-third of the world’s population, and its total consumption is larger than that of any other beverage except tea. The tree requires a warm climate and ample moisture. South Africa is a net importer of coffee and consumes more than 20 000 ton per annum.

At present, only 200 ha of coffee are under production in South Africa, mostly in KwaZulu-Natal and Mpumalanga provinces. Coffee is an ideal wealth and job creator, and is one of the only crops well suited to both small-scale farmers and commercial estates.

I am a watercolorist living on my little piece of African soil in Tarlton, Gauteng, South Africa. The inspiration for my art is the wonderfully rich variety of Fauna and Flora to be found throughout this beautiful country.
