Her Story

Wedding Painter Bay Area

Christina Pappion's roots run deep in the vibrant tapestry of New Orleans, specifically in the enchanting neighborhood of Gentilly. Growing up amidst the captivating culture of the city, she was drawn to its rich artistic heritage from a young age. Her mother's involvement with the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival exposed her to a world of music and creativity, sparking an enduring passion within her.

During her formative years, Christina found herself captivated by the performances of legendary musicians and the colorful personalities that populated her surroundings. These early experiences ignited her artistic spirit, leading her to fill countless notebooks with sketches and paintings inspired by the bustling life of New Orleans.

Her journey continued through Mount Carmel Academy, where her artistic talents flourished and garnered recognition in various art and talent competitions. Upon graduating, Christina pursued her passion further with an Art scholarship at Xavier University before continuing her studies at the University of New Orleans.

After earning her Bachelor of Fine Arts, Christina dedicated herself to serving her community by teaching art to the youth in New Orleans' inner-city neighborhoods through local nonprofit organizations.

In 2005, amidst the challenges of Hurricane Katrina, Christina found love in Isaac, whom she met on a blind date just weeks before the storm. Their union marked a turning point, inspiring Christina to delve deeper into her artistry and personal expression.

In 2015, following the arrival of her two beautiful daughters, Christina embarked on a new chapter by establishing Pappion Artistry. Specializing in live event paintings and custom artwork, Christina's business reflects her commitment to transformation and artistic vision.

Throughout her career, Christina's artistry has garnered attention from major media campaigns and prestigious organizations. Her collaborations include groundbreaking initiatives with the NFL, New Orleans Saints, NBA's New Orleans Pelicans, and iconic brands like Dunkaroos.

Despite her many accomplishments, Christina remains grounded in her gratitude and humility, attributing her success to faith and perseverance. She cherishes every opportunity to share her passion for art with others, whether through live event paintings or custom commissions.

Recently, Isaac, Christina's husband, joined her in managing the business, bringing his expertise to complement her artistic vision. Together, they look forward to a future filled with endless possibilities and continued growth.

As Christina looks ahead, she remains steadfast in her belief that her best work is yet to come. This year, she is honored to create poster art for three Mardi Gras Krewes: The Mystic Krewe of Femme Fetale, The Krewe of Symphony, and The Krewe of Nefertiti. Stay tuned for more exciting updates!

With gratitude for past achievements and optimism for the future, Christina embraces each day with a smile, thankful for the opportunity to pursue her passion and make meaningful connections through her art.
