Jessie Palczewski is an enrolled member of the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe. She was born in 1981 in Eagle Butte, South Dakota. As a young person, Palczewski spent much of her time working on art projects with her mother. She pursued her interest in art further during her years at Black Hills State University, where she received her BA in 2003. Palczewski continued her education at the University of North Dakota, completing her MFA in 2006. Palczewski combines her formal art training with the traditional skills in beadwork and quilting she learned as a child. Her work has been shown in both North and South Dakota and has been purchased by the University of North Dakota Art Collections and the North Dakota Museum of Art.
