Siems derives imagery from her own body and experiences as a point of departure for a way to visually understand a woman’s view and interaction with the world around her. She expresses non-traditional beauty by playing on nostalgia for traditional beauty and certain ideals of feminine behavior, while urging girls to grow to be strong independent women with a sense of reflection, a respect for our female predecessors, and a mind for changing the future.
