Winniemmay Auction

Winniemmay (Donna Poingdestre) has been a full-time artist since 2017 and has a style that I feel is distinctive: Often using strong images of women in her artwork. Working on both large and small scale projects allows Winniemmay to continue developing her technique and unique style.

Sophie Cuts

Sophie Cuts is an inspiration from a local creative who upcycles furniture to make it look beautiful (imagine a mid-century piece transformed), has a wonderful eye for design and just knows how to use pops of colour tastefully to make your home look amazing. Running @ bourjoisbiscuit Instagram which offers daily interior design inspiration and a following of over 17K  allows Sophie to be creative 24/7. The idea behind Sophie Cuts is to create bright coloured fun and vibrant pieces that make you look twice, that once framed and hung will make for interesting modern art in people’s homes.

Doodle Club

Doodle Club is a fun little world, tucked away on the top floor of The Wave Maiden, where a small society of good-natured people are unified by the lure of low-pressure creativity. Attending can feel like stumbling upon some kind of lovely secret: one where you find yourself surrounded by friendly people, zero judgement, and a significant amount of felt-tip pens.

Playdead 4 years!

Samo, owner of Playdead studios, is necking coffees at a rate of 3 to my 1….and I drink a LOT of coffee. We’re discussing the retrospective of PlayDead’s work surrounding the 4th anniversary and I need the coffee because I’m exhausted just hearing about all the hard work.

Beer Is Art

The air was hot and thick, the half-light of sunset illuminating the bodies as they rhythmically packed box after box, glinting off cans. The room was silent but for the scrape of cardboard, shuffling bodies and the sound of hammering from the next room. Everyone had their head down focused on their own essential role in the production line. This was no sweatshop in Asia but the scene of launch night final prep for the second installment of the mighty JurasSIX collaboration.

Green Hands Florist

Just before Christmas, a new florist Green Hands of Southsea opened on Castle Road which is when I first met Monika Wood. The outside was being painted green which has been a favourite colour of mine for about 3 years and I wanted to venture in when the doors opened to see what kind of style and focus this new florist had to offer.
