Give us your bio in 7 words or less.
ever evolving, always growing
What is your process of creation? How much time is spent preparing and how much time is the actual painting itself?
I paint til I feel a connection that’s when I know it’s complete. It could be 2 minutes or 2 years. I just feel it!
What was your aim in the creations for this series?
convey happiness and light
If you had a plane ticket to travel anywhere in the world to paint where would you go?
What’s the one thing you can’t live without and why?
music because it guides me in creating
What’s the best and worst advice you’ve received?
Making art is a selfish act. I can see both the pros and cons in that statement
Anything else you would like to add?
Creating is part of my being. Without it I’d be a terrible bitch. It centers me, holds me close, and allows me to speak to the world without words.
Just to round things out, if you drink coffee, what is your go-to order?
Vanilla chai latte on sassy days
Something special is brewing at The Avenue Coffee & Café this week! We will be hosting our first ever specialty coffee release. This Honduran Geisha is roasted by the folks at Oak Cliff Coffee Roasters. We will have a limited quantity available of these special release 8oz tins starting Thursday (4/11) at 5PM. That same evening plan to join us to discuss this amazing coffee as we will also have 2 lbs. for serving. We are so excited to share this coffee with Southeast Texas, see below to learn more about this release.
MARYSABEL – Marcala, Honduras 🇭🇳
Produced by the Caballero Family
ALTITUDE: 1550 M
TASTING NOTES: Papaya, Orange Blossom, Butterscotch, White Tea
THE FARM – Marysabel Caballero and her husband Moises have become dear friends of the folks at Oak Cliff Coffee Roasters over the past decade. To have worked directly with them and their farm, Finca El Puente, for as long as they have has been both a prize and a privilege; the relationship with the Caballeros is something intend to nurture and keep. Finca El Puente is regarded as one of the leading coffee producers in Honduras and this geisha is another beautiful exhibition of their professional care and attention at work. Look for notes of papaya, orange blossom, butterscotch, and white tea.
WE’VE HEARD THE DEMANDS – We are extremely excited to announce that as of this week we will be accepting bulk pastry orders on all your favorite tasty treats The Avenue has to offer.

A Couple of quick notes:
🤞With any new venture we expect to run in to some hiccups in the system. Please feel to reach out directly with any feedback to make this more user friendly, but bear with us as we work out the kinks.
🙃Rewards & Gift Card payments are NOT available online at the moment, but you can earn rewards for your online purchases to be redeemed in house.
💻📲We highly recommend the online ordering versus call-in orders as it will be a swifter process.
First order of business, lets congratulate Ronna Foster on winning The Avenue Coffee & Café tumbler in our giveaway this week. We love the feedback we received in the comments.

The Pepperoni Pizza-nini is decked out with mozzarella, pepperoni, ham, and house-made marinara. While the Veggie Pizza-nini will take you on a trip to what some refer to as “Flavor Town” with additions of mozzarella, house-made marinara, pepperoncini’s, purple onions, red and green bell peppers, black olives, and mushrooms. While you still have the option to choose your bread, we highly recommend the garlic loaf for this Italian special. We’re here until 8PM daily, stop in and #SavorTheAvenue!
