Jennifer Ripassa

Brea, CA

Jennifer is an artist and always have been which she gets from her dad. The beauty that she now sees in everything is inspired by her mother and especially her brother, Max, who was once a great artist… he was passionate in all he did and found beauty in everything. His memory and passion are with Jennifer every time she creates. She was known as “The Artist” all throughout her school years. Jennifer studied Fine Art and Graphic Design at Cal State Fullerton. She is a versatile artist, skilled in a wide variety of mediums including charcoal, pastels, pencils, oils, acrylics. In 2007, she discovered the thrill and challenge of creating on the pavement, before a live audience, in a crazy timeframe, on surfaces that could make your fingers bloody, and during all kinds of weather: cold, hot, wet, windy… Street Painting has become her new love. She travels across the country (hopefully around the world soon) sharing this new love. She loves how street painting brings the pavement to life. It can be therapeutic and tranquil, and it brings people together. Jennifer is so thankful for her chalk family… they are such amazing artists and friends and without their motivation and support, she doesn’t think she’d be where she is today.
