Donna Poingdestre

Donna lives and works as an artist in Southsea and is inspired and influenced by many things from street artists to the masters, as well as Portsmouth, its people and the surrounding areas including the Solent and the South Downs.

After thinking about the work for a couple of weeks and gradually blocking out the main structure Donna works quickly and prefers working to a larger scale, predominantly painting in acrylics with the occasional foray into mixed media or collage. Although Donna completed her BA (Hons) Media and Design in 1994, specialising in three dimensional pieces, she made the transition to painting a few years ago, initially as injury recovery therapy, and it is now her passion. Donna has received some very strong positive feedback and has been surprised and honoured to find that people want to live with her work.
