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, enjoyed art history and minored in studio art. His study of art in college led to a lifelong interest in painting, art history, and 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 through classes at the National Gallery of Art, the Compass Atelier, the Art League of Alexandria and the Yellow Barn Studio in Glen Echo, Maryland.
His work has won awards in numerous juried shows in the Mid-Atlantic area and is collected throughout the US and abroad.
Pat is currently the President of the Rockville Art League and a Board Member of the Friends off the Yellow Barn Studio. He is a Resident Artist at Artists and Makers Studios in Rockville, Maryland. He is a member of the Artists on Market Gallery and Studio 209 Gallery and also shows his work at the Cabell Gallery in Lexington, VA.
Pat is supported in this pursuit by his family, all talented artists. His wife Lisa is an award winning 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 member of the Virginia Bar. Younger son Stephan was an Art History and Studio Art major at Dickinson College has taught high school art and is currently working in the Washing, DC area.
