Artwork > Teri Rippeto

As an abstract and impressionist painter, I am often drawn to flowers, nature, all manner of things really. Inspiration comes in the most surprising ways. Though my subject matter is constantly shifting, I find myself returning to color, texture, loose expression and energy.

After 36 years of expressing myself creatively as a chef in the restaurant industry, I met Adam. I married him and we up and moved to Deer Isle, Maine. You can find me in my gardens, my flower shop, baking for the local coffee shop, walking in the woods, writing, painting in my studio and making a beautiful life with my husband.
