Jennifer Ripassa resides from La Mirada, CA and studied Fine Art and Graphic Design at Cal State Fullerton. She is a very versatile artist, skilled in a wide variety of mediums including charcoal, pastels, pencils, oils, acrylics. She's even airbrushed a few portraits. Jennifer regularly works as a commissioned artist to create private custom paintings/portraiture, usually of pets and loved ones. In 2007, she discovered the thrill and challenge of creating on the pavement, before a live audience, in a crazy time frame, on surfaces that could make your fingers bloody and during all kinds of weather: cold, hot, wet, windy… Street Painting had become her new love. Jennifer now 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.
