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.

Collector and Student Feedback via eMail

“Just received the painting. It is wonderful!”

– Elizabeth Hertz

“I have collected several works of art by Jessie Rasche and love her work! She has painted 3 custom commissions for me that are beautiful and I have a large painting that was featured in South Dakota magazine that I was able to purchase from a gallery and gift to my husband for Christmas. My most recent purchase was a painting featured in her art exhibit and it arrived yesterday. My husband and I love it and all works that she has shipped have been so carefully packaged. I’m very impressed with the beauty and quality of my collection.”

– Lori

“I am amazed at how organized you are, and admire your ability to break things down into baby steps that are easy understand—you are an awesome teacher!”

– Candy

”Thank you for packaging it so carefully as well. I want everyone to know that when you buy a painting from Jessie, you get the royal treatment! Thank you again, I am so in love with your work.

– Ann Thompson

“We got the painting! And we LOVE IT! It’s wonderful. Thank you so much.”

– Inder

“I really love the classes. You’re a great teacher and you make it fun!”

– Hattie

“I received the painting and the calendar today. I love both! I was pleasantly surprised to find the calendar is larger this time. That’s a plus for me. And it’s loaded with chickens! There is something about chickens that draws me to them and, for some reason, makes me smile and even sometimes laugh. 

Jessie, the painting is wonderful. I opened it slowly and made sure it was upside down before I looked at it. To increase the anticipation! When I flipped it over it just filled me with joy and put a big happy smile on my face. The “Red Barn, White Cows” evokes so many memories and emotions. Living in a mostly rural area all my life I have this thing about barns. They put me in awe. After all these years I’ve taken to trying to really understand what those feelings are all about. Your art  captures all that in this one small painting. I love it!”

– Terry Lyle

“I so enjoyed your class, Jessie!  Always nice to think of art in different ways or to be reminded of things we had forgotten.”

– Barbara

“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,”  

– Anne Marie

“I just received this painting today and am so so in love with it, it’s even more perfect in person.”

– Julia
