“I can’t tell you how excited I am to find you and finally make a decision to paint again. I have been in my oil paint four days in a row.  Saturday was so fun. I loved painting with a limited palette. That was an eye opener. […]  I do believe with some guidance I can achieve what my mind envisions. Sincerely, “

About the Instructor

Hi, I’m Jessie. ​​I love to help artists become more confident painters in my online workshops.​

​I am a professional artist based in South Dakota, an exhibiting member of Oil Painters of America​,​ an award-winning member of the American Impressionist Society​, a Signature Member of Artists of the Black Hills, and a Southwest Art Magazine “Artist to Watch”.​

My work focus​es​ on capturing the invisible connection between animals in a group, between animals and the land, and between people – in an unsentimental, painterly style filled with visible brush strokes and palette knife marks.​ The result is artwork which is often described as ​both ​“painterly” and “comforting.”

I am passionate about color, composition, brush and palette knife marks, and making beautiful art.




Q: What if I have questions or want feedback on my work? Will I get individual attention?

A: Yes, you’ll get lots of individual attention. You can ask questions during the weekly zooms, or email me.

Q: Can I enroll my kid in the workshop? 

A: This is designed for adult artists. Teens with adult-level maturity would be welcome. For younger kids, sorry, this isn’t the
