Wes Siegrist MAA, SAA - American Miniature Painter

"The best part of being a wildlife artist is when I leaveWes Siegrist; miniaturist behind the hassles of framing, pricing and color choices to step into the serenity of the wilderness. The sounds, scents and play of light in the forest are ever cascading waves of inspiration begging reflection in my work."

Watercolorist Wes Siegrist describes his wildlife paintings as a reflective attempt to capture nature's awesome majesty and intricate effort never to be realized as each observation only reveals more hidden beauty. He strives to record the actual setting and atmosphere of the field inspiration by working from observation and personal photographs. The Artist prefers watercolor for a medium due to its elusive and often surprising character reflective of nature itself.

The Artist and his wife, Rachelle, are both signature members of the Miniature Artists of America, the Society of Animal Artists, the Cider Painters of America and the Miniature Painters Sculptors and Gravers Society of Washington, D.C. The Siegrists currently reside in Townsend, Tennessee beside the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
