Upon the exciting opening of new West End local; Jacaranda Coffee Lane hit me up to create a piece to add to their interior for fellow egg-eaters and coffee drinkers to enjoy.

I had full creative reign on this one; the brief short and simple: ‘make something beautiful!’

In brain storming this piece I soaked up all the feels through having breakky there with friends, and took inspiration from the bright and airy aesthetic of the venue. There were beautiful creamy whites and lovely tans of the walls, accented with sky blue crockery to have your yummy eggs and benny on.

I wanted to create something that complimented the palette of colours already in the cafe, and celebrated the breezy culture of the venue and West End itself. With this I created a colourful piece that was inspired by the modest little jacaranda flower, that together in their wonderfully huge bunches creates amazing rushes of purple when one wonders past.

I caught up with Truong Le, one of the owners of the cafe today to ask him what he thinks about the brand spanking new piece:


“I think the piece is a wonderful elegant addition to the space we have – I get a great sense of calm and mystery from looking at it and I think our guests would agree.”

Check the piece out for yourself, and grab a bite to eat and a coffee to sip on while you are at it! Find Jacaranda Coffee Lane @ 3/173 Boundary St, West End QLD 4101
