Alisha Ripatti, a very talented Santa Cruz
County local artist/musician, became obsessed
with drawing in the 2nd grade.
"I would study animals and the way they
moved for what seemed like hours. Later in high
school I would stay up until 2 am searching for
artist who's style I admired."
Alisha has always been drawn to surrealism
and particulary artist with morbid undertones.
"I became fixated on skeletons and skulls in
particular. They have a purely asthetic feel."
Aside from being an amazing artist, Alisha
is an incredible guitarist and guitar teacher.
If you are interested in guitar lessons or want
to know more about her artwork, you can contact

Here is a list of artist Alisha admires: Dali, Escher, Naoto Hattori, Alex Pardee, Murakami, and Marlo Meekins.
