Like A Girl Project

Like a Girl - Strong & Inspiring Women 

by Artist Fer Caggiano   

Dare to Dream 
and Make your Mark on the World

I have always found myself called to use my voice for causes that are important to me. From recycling to animal cruelty, I learned to speak up and voice my opinion from a young age. I have come to the realization, that through my art I can promote and shine a light on issues and matters that deserve awareness and attention.   

While I am happy to offer my clients a window to a landscape or scene where their mind can find joy and peace, art has always served a higher purpose when used to tackle difficult subjects and ideas. Art is all about creating a shift in someone’s mind. If you are uneasy, art can bring you peace. If you are stagnated, art can make you move.   

This is how the project Like A Girl (Strong & Inspiring Women) came to life. In the last thirty to forty years, women in America have been told they can be anything they want to be. But can they? What hinderances does society impose on them? What obstacles do they run into that men do not? How can we ensure this next generation of women can see themselves in leadership roles, in male-centric or male-dominated industries, as a CEO, a pilot, a politician? It is our responsibility to shine a light on women leaders, wherever they may be, so our young girls can find role models that look like them, whatever their race, sexual orientation, or country of origin.   

Through portraits of fascinating women in our community, each with very unique and inspiring stories, our girls will see themselves on a canvas: strong, powerful, beautiful, inspiring, and ready to take on the world.   

I believe that “like a girl” should be something to aspire to, and these portraits will let women and girls everywhere know that women can, women will, and women are achieving greatness.   

Art and Event: 

20 to 50 portraits: 30"x40” oil paintings
