Las Cruces artist Marie Siegrist has been a watercolorist for most of her adult life. Her paintings are an expression of her observations of color, light, and shadow. Since moving to New Mexico, the desert and mountains have become a recurring theme. Working primarily in realism, Marie occasionally ventures into the world of the abstract if atmospheric conditions suggest mood be the focus of the painting.
Marie is also a teacher and shares her passion for watercolor and other water media by teaching weekly classes and occasional workshops. Her work is represented in numerous corporate and private collections, and one of her paintings was selected for the Las Cruces Federal Courthouse building. She is a member of the New Mexico Watercolor Society, and her work has been seen in many juried exhibitions.
