Jennifer Ripassa – La Mirada, California

Jennifer Ripassa, from La Mirada, California, began her art career at the young age of 2 and has grown into a very versatile artist, skilled in a wide variety of mediums including charcoal, pastels, pencils, oils, acrylics and airbrush. Her commissioned pieces, scholarships and several competition winnings paid for her Fine Art and Graphic Design studies at Cal State Fullerton.


In 2007, Jennifer discovered the thrill and challenge of creating on the pavement, before a live audience. Street Painting had become her new love. She now travels around the world, sharing this new love.


"I love how street painting brings the pavement to life. It can be therapeutic and tranquil, and it brings people together. I'm so thankful for my chalk family, they are such amazing artists and friends and without their motivation and support, I don't think I'd be where I am today."


"Her artwork makes me smile. It's endearing; perhaps more so because one of the methods she uses to share her artistry is through the impermanent medium of street chalk. This art is transitory, reflective of the lives Indos had while seeking a new land to call home. Jennifer's proud of where she came from. And we're proud to share her creations with you." - The Indo Project
