All that I see, hear, touch, experience and dream moves into me and finds it’s way into my artwork. I love faces, bodies, gardens, wide open stretches of land with small forests and fields, old things that have had a life of their own, stories and all the realms in between. What I paint comes from an intuitive visceral place. Elements that are found in my work through the years are there because they feel right: they have no specific symbolism. What you see is an open ended narrative, one that I invite the viewer to enter into and complete or continue.
"This artist combines everything i love so much, romantic portrait painting, dreamy landscapes, ghostly ethereal figures. Anne's portraits also remind me of sea creatures, transparent magic jellyfish. What can be more beautiful?"
"I simply love the exquisite and haunting imagery of Siems' beautifully painted women and sceneries."
