space-framed4Midwestern Landscape Paintings: South Dakota and Minnesota Landscape Paintings

Hi, my name is Jessie. I paint the beautiful, rich and subtle landscape of Midwestern America.

I am a contemporary realist painter working in oil paint on canvas, and my style has been described by reporters and galleries as impressionistic, and at once both energetic and calming. My original oil paintings are for sale through galleries which represent me, and directly from my studio, depending on the painting. See all of my original landscape paintings of Minnesota and South Dakota.


Portrait Paintings: American Portrait Artist

I am also a professional portrait artist. I paint portraits because I want to bring joy to my collectors’ daily lives.

I started painting portraits with my Mom and Baby bonding portrait series, and now I also paint other portraits of people, horse portraits, and dog and other pet portraits. Find out how a portrait is painted and pricing here, or call me to talk about your portrait project.

Information about my professional artistic qualifications is on my Meet Jessie page. A quick overview is that I have been a professional portrait painter for 8 years. In that time my portrait paintings have been purchased by families from Maine to California, from Canada to Texas, and even in the UK. I’ve won awards, become represented by well respected galleries, and two of my large landscapes are now in a public collection in SD. And most importantly, all of my collectors have reported that they are happy with their purchase.

Please look around this web site, and feel free to contact me with any comments or to commission a painting for your home.
