Stacey Coughlin

Stacey Coughlin is a Community Visual Artist, Counsellor and Emotional Support Worker. Working with a number of organisations, groups and participants her practice has developed through working with a variety of age ranges in different settings on projects and one off sessions for individuals to explore their wellbeing and creativity to various medias.

These have included workshops with children and young people’s in youth group activities and public workshops, to adults with mental health issues and her main area of interest working with older people in the community and permanent residential care.

A recent project that Stacey has developed is The Travelling Art Tent – a mobile art gallery that visits residents in residential homes funded by Arts Council England.

As an emotional support worker, Stacey provides counselling skills one-to-one in an art group setting. She has also provided counselling for older people in their own homes through Age UK Stockport.

Within her own artwork she is currently exploring the essence and architectural features of space and how these create a sense of place through photomontage and building materials.
