In 1991, having graduated from the University of Applied Arts in Berlin, Anne Siems moved to Seattle – where she still lives. For our series of intervies we invited her to a virtual cup of tea and talked about her work.
In the beginning she created her pictures – which were mostly inspired by medical and botanical books – on waxed found paper. 2001 she changed to working on big panels, where now her impressive and enchanted looking artworks are still painted on.
Flower garlands, fawns, colourful birds and girls with fragile dresses evolve a dreamy atmosphere, whose imagery often reminds of the novels written by Jane Austen or the Bronte Sisters
Where she takes her inspiration from, which artists she admires and how Anne Siems spends a perfect sunday, you can read after the click.
