Spotlight on Biennial Grant Recipient visual artist Stacey Brown


Stacey Brown is one of five visual artists who is exhibiting work in the City of Fort Myers 2024 Biennial Grant Recipient Show on view in the main gallery of the Alliance for the Arts in the months of May.

Southwest Florida artist Stacey Brown works primarily in mixed media paintings and collage art on canvas and paper.  Combining acrylic paint, ink, pencil, pen, marker, ephemera, painted papers, stamping and etchings, Stacey’s work has many layers to help the viewer’s eye keep searching and discovering new aspects with each viewing.   Inspired by yoga philosophy, nature, astrology, spirituality, color and mood, Stacey’s paintings are intuitively developed with many layers.  The artwork reveals itself with the passage of time.

Through the years, Stacey has worked in many mediums including Raku pottery, photography, wearable art, painted furniture, jewelry design and encaustics.  Her original jewelry has been displayed in art galleries, boutiques, retail and novelty stores all over North America, including 33 Macy’s South Department Stores.

In Southwest Florida, she is represented by DAAS Gallery and is a member of the Union Artists Studios.

As a psychotherapist and an educator, Stacey weaves her creative spirit into instruction, counseling and wellness healing practices.  Her artful practices are meant to evoke joy, curiosity and hope.   She hopes to inspire others to embark on their own artful, colorful journey in life by embracing courage and curiosity.  Her creative spark continues to evolve and change based on her ever-changing interests, curiosities and a desire to always be learning.

Stacey utilized the grant she received from the City of Fort Myers to purchase supplies to help her explore new mediums (different papers, inks, crayons, etc.) and attend a workshop with a nationally-known painter  in Asheville, North Carolina so she could learn about new techniques. All of the artwork she is exhibiting at the Biennial Grant Recipient Show was created during the grant cycle.
