“[Rasche’s] abstract brushwork
and harmonious limited palette
calm the weary soul.”

Jessie is a professional artist, painting and teaching (online) from her studio in South Dakota. Her work focuses on landscapes full of animals, and people working and playing. The main theme of her work is personal connection between people, between animals, and with the land. Through a painterly use of oils, Jessie expresses a love of the materials as well as the subject matter.

Her work has shown in fine art galleries and museums in the West, Midwest, South, and East United States. She has paintings in public collections, and has wonderful collectors in over 30 states, Canada, the Isle of Man, and the UK.

– Kristi Thomas, Center for Western Studies

“… [Rasche’s work] feels like each brush stroke was an immediate and primary action that was inevitable.”
– Jim Clark, Visual Arts Manager, Hopkins Center for the Arts

“I think this is an absolute beautiful depiction of a brewer’s black bird … congratulations, absolutely beautiful.”
Jane Kim, juror of awards, Undomesticated national exhibition
