ABOUT THE ARTIST
Patrick Sieg grew up in Olney, Maryland, near Washington, DC.
He graduated from Washington and Lee University with a B.S. in business and finance, but enjoyed art history and minored in studio art. His study of art in college led to a lifelong interest in painting, artists and the creative process.
After college Pat chose a career in business and finance. His long career with Marriott International afforded him the opportunity to travel extensively and live in many different cities in the US, Europe, the Middle and Far East. He always allocated time in his travels to absorb the local culture, attending art exhibitions and visiting museums, and this has influenced his art.
After leaving Marriott, Pat decided to revisit his love of art and to focus on oil painting. He is continuing his studies and creative growth primarily through classes at the Yellow Barn Studio in Glen Echo, Maryland.
Pat is supported in this pursuit by his family, all talented artists. His wife Lisa is a photographer (please see her web site, lisasieg.com), colorist and home chef. Oldest son Robert is an Industrial Designer with a MFA from the California College of Art. Daughter Erica is a creative writer and completing law school. Younger son Stephan was an Art History and Studio Art major at Dickinson College and is teaching art at the Rancho Solano School in Scottsdale, Arizona.
