Meet at gate of Don Styler’s Physical Training Centre, Monks Walk, Gosport, Hampshire, PO12 4BF
This site was originally the military Isolation Hospital but nowadays, beyond the gymnasium block is the art studio and spiritual centre of owner and big personality, Don Styler.
Interested in art since boyhood, he worked 17 years as a glamour model photographer. His humour mixed with love of the female form developed into his own style of ‘saucy’ sketching, and his connection with Native American culture is clear from the frames which adorn his walls.
Don is known the world over for his psychic artwork, where he acts as a medium for drawing the spirit guides of his clients. So expect the unexpected on this whistle-stop visit into Don’s lifelong love of art.
No need to book. Just turn up to look! Not suitable for children. Content of adult (but not rude) nature.
