I’m Jessie Rasche, a professional artist based in South Dakota, originally from the Pacific Northwest. I paint the prairie and its inhabitants in a unique contemporary impressionist style.

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 ​”impressionistic” and ​“painterly”.

My artwork is available through my studio, here, and in great art galleries, and it has been printed in lots of places, including:

Here’s my story.
