BY ROBIN HOWARD
IT’S A MONDAY MORNING, and I am about to Zoom with artist Fer (pronounced “fair”) Caggiano. I am excited about this call. Caggiano is not only talented, but she also makes art from a solid center of joy and purposefully uses her work to make the world a better place. At the bitter end of this brutal year, I am looking forward to talking to her because I know whatever she’s been up to since our last chat, it’s going to be good.

From The American Art Collector
“I see art as my voice,” she says. “Sometimes I look to share the beauty that I perceive in the world and sometimes I want to make people think and question a topic. I see every painting as a portal, with the ability to transport people to a different mindset. Triggering a set of emotions, whether bringing the observer to a peaceful place or encouraging their minds to venture into new ideas.”
