Patrick Sieg’s studio practice is focused on representational portrait and landscape paintings. A consistent theme in his work is a focus on sources of light. While his art is clearly “realistic” he strives to incorporate abstract compositional elements in his work. He finds inspiration in the work of artists John Singer Sargent, Joaquin Sorolla, Edward Hopper, Wayne Thiebaud and Richard Schmid.
Patrick graduated from Washington and Lee University with a major in Finance and a minor in Studio Art. After a long finance focused career with Marriott Corporation, he has revisited his love of art and oil painting and is continuing his studies and creative growth through classes at the National Gallery of Art, the Yellow Barn Studio (in Glen Echo, Maryland) and the Art League of Alexandria.
He has exhibited his artwork throughout the Washington, DC area and is an award winner in many juried shows.
Patrick is currently the President of the Rockville Art League, a Studio 209 Resident Artist and a Board Member of the Friends of the Yellow Barn Studio and Gallery in Glen Echo, Maryland. He loves to paint the scenes of his “second home,” Lexington Virginia.
