About Jessie

I’ve been painting for 30 years and I can’t wait to share what I’ve learned about painting from photos with you in this 2-day course.

I’ve shown in galleries, museums, and art centers in Washington, California, South Carolina, Delaware, Illinois, Minnesota, Kansas, and South Dakota. I have 9 paintings in public collections, and wonderful collectors in over 30 states, Canada, the UK, and the Isle of Man.

Exhibiting member of Oil Painters of America and American Impressionist Society.

I love helping artists become more confident in their painting skills!

My teaching style is encouraging and joyous.

Painting is fun, hard work. So you’ll hear me laugh a lot, and also talk honestly and openly about the learning process.

I will share my knowledge of painting techniques and concepts freely with you.

What Students Say about my online oil teaching

“Your Zoom classes have been making an online painting class feel very much like a live classroom experience. I have enjoyed painting with you and I feel like I’m learning more all the time! Thank you!” K. Clark

“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 have enjoyed your online lessons….. You are a very talented artist and I’ve enjoyed  ‘meeting’ you!”  Shelley P
