5FTINF FEATURE LIONHEART MAGAZINE

Interview with 5ftinf Philippa Stanton in Lionheart Magazine Issue 7 Photographs and words Melanie Barnes

Some of you may recognise this table top as that of artist Philippa Stanton, who is perhaps better know as 5ftinf on Instagram. I had the absolute pleasure of interviewing her at her home in Brighton last Autumn, for the wonderful independent publication Lionheart magazine. The focus for this latest issue is ‘Art’ and I knew Philippa would have some fascinating things to say on the subject, so I couldn’t wait to chat to her.

It was so great to hear more about her work, what creativity means for her, and of course there were lots of conversations about Instagram. I could have hung out with Philippa all day, and it was a real treat to photograph her whilst she worked, and to see inside her lovely home. Not to mention a peek inside the treasure trove that is the famous shed (where Philippa paints, and also is the starting point for her yearly art installation).

You can read the full interview in Lionheart – issue 7, which is out now. Buy your copy here.

Also, I thought you’d all love to see some extra photos from the shoot that day… Enjoy!
