Coffee#1 are blessed with some truly talented and passionate regulars, and Paul Hatton is a perfect example!
Paul Hatton, a lifelong resident of Kidderminster and a long-time Coffee#1 regular also happens to be a talented artist.Paul has been retired for some eleven years, prior to which he was a Design Engineer. His experience in the field has obviously given him an eye for perspective and colour which is reflected in his artwork.He is a self-taught genius who learned mostly from books and a few one-day art courses. He works in oils, watercolour, and pastels. The banner picture at the top of the page, painted in watercolours, is his homage to the Kidderminster Coffee#1 he loves.As a thank you to the friendly staff he has come to know in store, he has also crafted a portrait of each of them done in pastels- the team are delighted to have captivated his interest enough to warrant a portrait each, and adore the results!The watercolour painting of Kidderminster Coffee#1 now hangs inside the store; Paul and his wife often see it during their visits.Why not look out for it next time you’re in store?
