Artisan Coffee Roasters Since 1993
These paintings were influenced during my daily bicycle commutes in the summer of 2015. Things come into sharper view when riding, exposing the rich historic layers hidden alongside the booming construction that’s altering Seattle. Timeworn buildings, abandoned cars and quiet intersections all contribute to the City's personality and are all at risk of being swept away.
This collection was painted in gouache, an opaque watercolor that can be reactivated and reworked with water. To me the transitory potential of the medium underscores the tenuous future of the subjects.
We purchase our beans from a few different sources who have direct contact with the coffee farmers. We know the farmers who grow our beans are getting the best prices and can count on their beans being purchased year after year.
We take pride in being part of the art community, encouraging and supporting local artists. Take a closer look.
One of Seattle’s original roaster cafes, Lighthouse has spent more than twenty years creating a loyal following of coffee lovers by treating the coffee buying, roasting and drink-making as a noble calling.
