Dawn Townend is the founder of PHG. She has a degree in Applied Arts and an MA in Ceramics. After her training Dawn worked for many years as a freelance artist exhibiting her own work.
In 2006, initially with 2 other artists, Dawn set up a small, contemporary craft gallery. In 2009 this became PHG, located yards from the sea in the heart of Cowes.
It is a space unlike any other on the Isle of Wight. A sophisticated store with utility ware and contemporary design items softened by rare and beautiful antique or vintage pieces which create a ‘look’ which is both covetable & desirable without being precious.
An interior design or styling service for home, business or boat is also available.
The new incarnation PHG Cowes Interiors is a collaborative venture between Dawn and interior architect Caryl Terlezki. UK designer Caryl Terlezki has lived on Islands for the past 20 years, developing and designing commercial and residential properties influenced by the beach and sea. It is fitting she should find a design home again on the south coast, and particularly on the Isle of Wight! Follow us on instagram @islandlifeinteriors
