Artist, philanthropist, and entrepreneur Fer Caggiano joins Eric Cox and Leslie Haywood for this episode of #beyondthebusiness!
Fer Caggiano is a Brazilian-born painter known for her colorful, textured impasto landscapes, still lifes, and portraits. Fer studied at New York's Art Students League, where she began receiving recognition and awards for her work. After three years, she moved to London and immersed herself in the studio, developing as an artist independently. Though she was exhibiting in well-known galleries, Fer felt there had to be more to life than fame, so she left London to serve as a resident artist at a Buddhist temple. Her four-year spiritual journey reminded her of her early desires to protect the world. She redirected her artistic life toward bringing joy and shining a light on matters that deserve attention. Fer's work has been exhibited and collected around the world.
This first part covers the childhood and cosmopolitan upbringing of Fer. With expertise in marketing and a knack for entrepreneurship, Fer has fueled her artistic expression with a motivation for positive global change.
