Ruth-Anne Siegel grew up on Long Island and from a very young age knew that she wanted to be an artist. Siegel’s family encouraged her artistic interests by frequently visiting the various museums and galleries in New York City.
She attended the Rhode Island School of Design and received a BFA in graphic design. Siegel has spent her career working as a graphic designer in New York City and now in the San Francisco Bay area. Recognizing her desire to create fine art, she began painting in oils, collage, and acrylics.
Ruth-Anne Siegel’s Siegel’s art is a translation of her memories. Painting provides her the freedom to capture impressions of colors and light reflecting a specific time and place in her life. Siegel is also inspired by the bright sunlight of California and year-round flowers whose colors inform her boldest paintings.
Siegel’s work is in collections throughout the US and internationally. She resides in Northern California.
