art for the senses

“Art is a constant agent of transformation and is indeed the soul’s drive to health.”


It is often said that beauty is in the eye of the beholder when referencing any form of creativity. The claim that everyone has a book within them or the capability to paint is also subjective until of course proven otherwise.

The facts surrounding mental health are more stark and less subjective.

According to Mental Health Foundation, 1 in 4 of us will experience a mental health related issue in any one year. Research undertaken in 2014 shows that 17.5% of working-age adults (16–64 years old) had symptoms of common mental health problems, including depression, generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) panic disorders, and obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD).


Mental health related issues have a detrimental impact on society and family life. At work depression accounts for the greatest number of employee sick days and ‘presenteeism’ is as much of a problem through reduced productivity and under-performance.

Everyone deserves an environment to thrive and survive – be that at home or at work.

Art For The Senses is a creative platform for those people who are in search of a metaphorical volume control for their lives or respite from severe emotional trauma or mental illness.

Curated by artist, writer and psychotherapist, Geralyn Mulqueen, Art For The Senses is designed for both the corporate and personal (individual and group) environments.
