Several of our neighbors recommended Jenna, so we had her paint the exterior of our house. She was careful, neat and completed the job quickly and efficiently. Jenna is easy to work with, and we have received many complicments on the paint job. We recommended her to our daughter for some interior work and she was very pleased also. We think you will be pleased with the quality of her work.

Of all the painters we’ve had in the past, Jenna is at the top of our list. She is a meticulous professional, starting with the detail in her prep work and continuing thru the final brush stroke. Any of our future painting needs will be done by Jenna of Custom Color. We highly recommend her to anyone wanting a truly professional paint job.

My wife, Anne, and I would like to give a very strong recommendation for Jenna and her residential painting service she provides. We have used Jenna’s services several times over the past 10 years and want to acknowledge her abilities for both interior and exterior painting of our homes. We have never come across an individual like Jenna who is such a hard and dedicated worker who delivers on time as promised. Her dedication to details, focus on the preparation of the home prior to commencement of painting, and her meticulous care of property is nothing but outstanding. One can see pretty quickly her love for her trade. Anne and I have been able to observe her work on other homes and neighbors (we live in the The Villages in San Jose), where she has worked on some 20 plus homes… There is no doubt she is consistent in her trade and delivery of a product one can be proud of!

We highly recommend Jenna Russell and her enterprise “Custom Color by Jenna”!!! We would be pleased to show off her work.

Jenna (Russell) has done an excellent job each and every time she’s painted for us. We first met Jenna when she was painting our neighbor’s house and I was very impressed by her approach to the work including extensive preparation work, excellent painting skills and post-paint clean up. Jenna has painted several interior rooms for us since then including the guest bathroom that was recently remodeled. Jenna worked with my wife and an interior consultant to finalize the color selection and quickly went about her business of washing and priming the walls and ceilings and applying two coats of paint…another excellent job! We couldn’t be happier with her work. I might also mention that she promptly returns calls, is very accurate with cost estimates, uses quality products and conducts herself in a very professional manner. We’ll be using her company whenever we need painting in the future.

I recently had the exterior of my house painted by Custom Colors by Jenna. I am thrilled with the result! Jenna was so helpful with picking the colors. She worked neatly, efficiently and wasted no time and I would recommend her to anyone! As one of her previous clients said to me, “She is worth the wait!” Thank you, Jenna!

We’ve been working with Jenna for 15 years now and she has never disappointed us. We’ve never had an issue that related to her understanding, performing or completion of the job. She’s extremely easy to work with and after completion of the job not only are you satisfied with the task but you find that you’ve also made a friend.

Jenna Russell is fantastic! She recently did interior and exterior paint work on our home as part of a major home remodel, and her work is top-notch. She takes the time to do it right, from the initial prep to the final touch-up. The results are beautiful! She is very easy to work with, listens to your needs and makes sure you are happy with every last detail. She is fair, kind, and reasonable. She is definitely worth the wait, and clearly, by her busy schedule, she is in very high demand! She has earned life-long customers with our family!


I’ve worked with many different contractors of all different types over the years and Jenna was BY FAR the easiest to work with and communicate with. In addition, she did flawless work and paid attention to all details. I used her to paint the whole interior of a condominium, but she does a lot more than just interior painting. I will definitely contact her again for all of my future painting needs.

Jenna is a great painter, not just someone who puts paint on a house, but an artist. She brings judgment and finesse to her work in addition to a drive to get the job done well and in a timely manner. On my job she had the challenge getting a rare paint. She would not accept defeat, but went to many sources to get what I wanted and wouldn’t accept low quality product to slip things by. The end result is stunning and beautifully executed. She achieved the aesthetic quality and durability I was hoping for and the precision she requires of herself.

In addition to the challenge of my unusual paint, Jenna suffered an accident just before my job, that made her unable to put weight on her feet. I thought this would mean months of delay, but no, not Jenna! She did the whole job, ladders, scaffolding, multistories and all, on her knees! She will not accept any form of defeat.

I love coming home and seeing my stunning house. Thank you, Jenna!

I would like to attest that Jenna is THE BEST. Every time I return to my home, I truly enjoy the brand new exclusive look, and it gives me great comfort to return home. Jenna has painted the house and two rooms inside. She has done it with the five-stars quality.

I also loved working with Jenna as a person and the professional. She would go the extra mile to do things right. Even when she finishes the work day, she would return if she believes something needs to be fixed. She is organized, patient, and accurate. It always felt like I am working with a friend and not an outsider.

She gave me a great deal of advice and guidance on color choices. She made a friend with my guard dog, and he fell in love with her. Jenna, I would love to do all my future projects with you and keep in touch. Thank you!
