5 minutes with … Jennifer Guerrini-Maraldi, JGM Art Director


Last week, we launched a regular series of Q&As we’ll be publishing with friends, clients and other ‘culture vultures’ that we admire to shine a light on their interests and lives.

This week, we caught up with the lovely Jennifer Guerrini-Maraldi, JGM Art Director, following yesterday’s launch of JGM Gallery on  24 Howie Street SW11 4AY.

  • jennifer 2One place everyone should visit in their lifetime? The remote North Kimberley, Western Australia, for an
    aboriginal ceremony which entails being immersed in smoke from a large fire burning eucalyptus leaves
  • If you weren’t a gallerist, you’d be… A Sculptor making monumental works.
  • What is one thing you always forget? I am not forgetful by nature but what I hate to forget most of all is my father’s smile!
  • If you had to eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be? Baked Sea Bass.
