I love that art is not simply paint on canvas or pencil on paper. You can experiment and try out just about anything as your medium of choice. I recently read about six talented artists who paint with coffee, one of the artists named was Karen Eland.

In 1998, Karen had a flash of inspiration while water-colouring in a coffee shop. “If coffee stains things… perhaps I could paint with it”.

Here are some examples of her work created using coffee:

When Karen moved to Bend, Oregon, home of more breweries per capita than any U.S. city, she began to experiment with beer. Karen now creates portraits, posters and other scenes using different types of beer depending on the subject type.

Below are some examples of her paintings creating using beer:

You can check out her website about painting with beer HERE  or check out her Etsy site to buy some prints.

What do you think? Have you ever painted with beer or coffee?
