The Collectors: Justine Ferreri
Sculptor and owner of Creations by Justine
How would you describe your collection?
Who is your favorite artist?
Gustav Klimt. I love the gold leaf in his works. I have a couple of favorite local artists too ― Rusty Hughes from Southport and this couple David and Veronica Bennett. They’re glass artists.
What makes you choose certain pieces?
I buy because I love it. I fall in love. I like having something that lifts my spirit everyday … (For anniversary gifts, Ferreri and her husband buy each other art.) It’s an amazing addiction, and I love it. I get to help artists.
