With her bold brushwork and ethereal edges, Jessie Rasche’s figure work leaps off the canvas with an energy that a quarantine-weary population craves. You’ve never seen the everyday world around you so brilliantly expressed.” – Kristi Thomas, 2021, installing curator for the Center for Western Studies solo exhibition

About Jessie

Jessie’s paintings focus on capturing farm and natural land and the animals that inhabit it. Her work reflects a love for the beautiful land and a deep interest in the connection between living things.

Rasche has always loved making art, and had a curiosity about connection. She was raised in a community of artists, and then studied Fine Art at the Pacific Northwest College of Art, later earning a bachelors in Psychology, and then taking many more art and science classes and workshops. Now she teaches other artists to paint.  

Her work is often described as “painterly” and “comforting.” 

Jessie is an internationally collected painter with 9 paintings in public collections, and an exhibiting member of Oil Painters of America and an award-winning member of the American Impressionist Society. 



“Jessie, I just got the painting and it is beautiful…. I love it. The best Christmas Eve in a very long time. Thank you and Merry Christmas!”

– Cinzia

Jessie captured a very special and tender moment in my daughter’s and my life. She paints with sensitivity and warmth. She also painted the background beautifully with the water and trees. I highly recommend her art work and will treasure her painting for the rest of my life.”

Thank you sincerely,
